In a strategic move to enhance agility and capitalize on global opportunities, Tata Motors is set to demerge its automotive business into two listed entities—commercial and passenger vehicles. As announced by Girish Wagh, the company’s Executive Director, this initiative could unlock significant potential in the commercial vehicle (CV) market worldwide.


Speaking to shareholders in the Annual Report for 2023-24, Wagh emphasized that the demerger would provide a sharper focus and better operational capabilities for the commercial vehicle sector. The separation will also bring significant synergies across passenger vehicles (PV), electric vehicles (EVs), and Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), particularly in the domains of EVs, autonomous vehicles, and vehicle software.

Looking ahead, Wagh expressed optimism about FY25, citing a favorable macroeconomic environment, especially in the domestic market. His counterpart, Shailesh Chandra, MD of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles, also envisaged sustained growth driven by customer preferences for safer, smarter, and greener vehicles. Chandra reaffirmed Tata Motors’ commitment to advancing the EV landscape through comprehensive initiatives aimed at expanding market presence and increasing EV penetration.
