IDIS, a central repository of "Manufacturer Compiled Information, "is used by 25+ global manufacturers from over 40 countries all over Europe and Asia. Tata Nexon is the first Indian car to join this elite group.
Tata motors Will provide all relevant information for the following responsible things :
-- vehicle handling
-- information about draining automotive fluids,
-- the neutralization of airbags and seat belt tensioners

Accordingly, all our products are created from the initiation stage itself with high recyclability potential to reduce material waste. The use of dangerous substances is limited to the bare minimum while producing, and now with a defined process to contrive ELV, we are putting down the route for responsible dismantling and recycling at the vehicle's end of life stage. We are assured that such pioneering actions will inspire all auto industry stakeholders and consumers to consciously regard sustainability and climate safety in their decision-making process while manufacturing and purchasing vehicles."
