Tata Motors has launched eight upgraded models of its different passenger vehicles, including the CNG version of its small car Nano.

In a bid to rev up sagging sales, the company has also introduced new CNG versions of the hatchback Indica and entry level sedan Indigo, along with refreshed versions of the two models in diesel options.

Car buyers will also have the options of buying refreshed models of Tata Motors' sports utility vehicle Safari Storme and utility vehicle Sumo Gold.

This is the first time that the company has introduced such a large number of new vehicles on a single day.

"The market has been bad in the past two months but since then there has been some improvements... We hope to recoup with these new models as they have been done with extensive customer feed back," Tata Motors Managing Director Karl Slym said.

The company hasn't announced the prices of the new vehicles yet.

Slym said the Nano, Indica and Indigo variants are ready for shipments while Safari and Sumo will be in the next three months.

Tata Motors reported a 23.37 per cent decline in total vehicle sales in May, at 49,304 units. Its total passenger vehicle sales in the domestic market stood at 11,134 units during the month, down 45.69 per cent from 20,503 units in the same month last year.
