Tata Nexonbecomes the first Indian car to be published on the International DismantlingInformation System (IDIS)  Mumbai, September17, 2020:India’sforemost home grown auto manufacturer Tata Motors today announced that the TataNexon, its popular compact SUV, has become the first Indian car to be publishedon the prestigious International Dismantling Information System (IDIS) platform forEnd-of-Life Vehicles (ELV). With this achievement, Tata Motors reiterates itsholistic commitment towards making the entire life cycle of its productssustainable i.e. from the development of ultra-low/zero emission vehicles toresponsible dismantling and recycling of the vehicle at the final ELV stage.  This milestone on the Nexon, signifies theincreasing commitment of Tata Motors to “End of Life” across its range ofvehicles and the beginning of sustained declaration of dismantling proceduresacross its entire range of vehicles that are complex with increasingtechnological content, though over the years commercial vehicles have achievedgood levels of recyclability where dismantling procedures are betterunderstood.  IDIS, which is a central repository of‘Manufacturer Compiled Information’, is used by 25+ global manufacturers fromover 40 countries across Europe and Asia and Tata Nexon is the first Indian carto join this elite group. Tata Motors will provide all relevant information forresponsible vehicle handling, starting with information about drainingautomotive fluids, the neutralization of airbags and seat belt tensioners andall the way up to the dismantling of components containing particularlyhazardous substances. This will now enable the Indian Authorised VehicleScrapping Facilities (AVSF) to undertake environmentally safe dismantlingpractices recommended by Tata Motors and implement them to work towards acleaner environment. The publishing of the Tata Nexon ELV process onIDIS also complements the government’s initiative towards Vehicle scrappagepolicy & Automotive Industry Standards (AIS 129), contributing to theprotection, preservation and improvement of the quality of the environment andenergy conservation. Speaking about this milestone, Mr.RajendraPetkar, President & CTO, Tata Motors, said “AtTata Motors, our commitment to following sustainable practices is absolute.Accordingly, all our products are designed from the inception stage itself withhigh levels of recyclability potential to minimise material waste. Use of hazardoussubstances is restricted to bare minimal while manufacturing and now with adefined process to manage ELV, we are laying down the path for responsibledismantling and recycling at the vehicle’s end of life stage. We are hopefulthat such pioneering initiatives will encourage all auto industry stakeholdersas well as customers to consciously consider sustainability and environmentsafety in their decision making process while building and purchasingvehicles.”  Tata Motors has a rich legacy of adoptingsustainable business practices. It established a proprietary InternationalMaterial Data System (IMDS) where all suppliers mandatorily declare details ofthe material used for manufacturing vehicle components. It also releases designand system standards for recyclability and maintaining control over the usageof hazardous substances & material marking as part of Performance AttributeTargets (PAT) of Environment Management. Tata Motors remains committed todesign vehicles that are environmentally green & sustainable, during itsactive life as well as after its end-of-life.  About Tata MotorsTata Motors Limited (NYSE: TTM; BSE: 500570 and 570001; NSE: TATAMOTORS and TATAMTRDVR), a USD 44 billion organization, is a leading global automobilemanufacturer of cars, utility vehicles, pick-ups, trucks and buses.
