Tata Nexon has become the first Indian car to be featured on the prestigious International Dismantling Information System (IDIS) platform for end-of-life vehicles.
India’s largest domestic-grown auto giant, Tata Motors is finding many ways out to make our environment cleaner. Apart from the introduction of the zero-emission Nexon EV, Tata has announced that its regular Nexon sub-compact SUV becomes the first Indian car to be published on the International Dismantling Infomation System (IDIS) platform for End-of-Life (ELV). Having said, this method has no connection with the level of emissions a Nexon can release but shows us how the car can be dismantled and recycled in a more environmentally-friendly way.
What is IDIS?
IDIS is short for the International Dismantling Infomation System that is a central repository of “ Manufacturer Compiled Information”. It is used by 25+ global manufacturers from over 40 countries in Europe and Asia. Tata Nexon is the very first Indian car to join this group.
How Do We Benefit From This?
With the Nexon being featured on IDIS, Tata Motors has reiterated its promise towards making an entire sustainable life cycle for its products, from the development and production of emission-free vehicles to the environment-friendly dismantling and recycling of the cars at their ELV stage.
The company has agreed to provide all relevant data for responsible products handling, starting from draining automotive fluids to neutralising off airbags and seatbelts pre-tensioners, all the ways to the dismantling of parts and components that contain hazardous substances safely. Accordingly, the Authorised Vehicle Scrapping Facilities will be enabled to undertake safer-for-environment dismantling practices that head us towards a cleaner environment.
"At Tata Motors, our commitment to following sustainable practices is absolute. Accordingly, all our products are designed from the inception stage itself with high levels of recyclability potential to minimise material waste. Use of hazardous substances is restricted to bare minimal while manufacturing and now with a defined process to manage ELV, we are laying down the path for responsible dismantling and recycling at the vehicle’s end of life stage. We are hopeful that such pioneering initiatives will encourage all auto industry stakeholders as well as customers to consciously consider sustainability and environment safety in their decision-making process while building and purchasing vehicles” said Mr Rajendra Petkar, the President and CTO of Tata Motors.
In another development, Tata’s premium hatchback, the Altroz has become an official partner of Dream11 IPL2020. Also, the company is in its final negotiation to sell about 600 military trucks to the Royal Thai Army of Thailand. Stay tuned for the latest updates on Tata cars and others with IndianAuto.
