Tata Motors has achieved a milestone of rolling out the 9,00,000th vehicle from its state-of-the-art Lucknow plant.

The rollout ceremony on Saturday saw the flag-off by Uttar Pradesh chief secretary Durga Shanker Mishra.

Recognised as a water-positive facility by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Tata Motors’ Lucknow facility has set industry benchmarks for sustainable manufacturing.

Spread over 600 acres, it houses a 6 megawatt (mw) solar power plant to reduce its carbon footprint.

The facility augments ultra-modern vehicle manufacturing stations such as robotic paint booth and body-in-white shop featuring robotic spot welding, amongst other highlights.

Since its inception in 1992, the facility has rolled out cargo and passenger commercial vehicles including light, intermediate, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, as well as electric and fuel cell electric buses.

Vishal Badshah, Vice President and Head – Operations said, “Equipped with industry-leading infrastructure and supported by Industry 4.0 integration, this facility has played an instrumental role in helping us deliver superior, safe and smart mobility solutions to our customers.”

Tata Motors is setting a benchmark in gender inclusivity and women empowerment at its Lucknow plant.

Presently, women constitutes a third of the technical workforce, actively participating in all operational shifts and demonstrating a wide array of skills across the production of diverse products, including trucks and buses.
