The firm's market cap fell to 1.32 lakh crore on the BSE. The large cap stock has gained 24.72 per cent in a year, but lost 18 per cent in 2022.

As per the company, JLR faces headwinds due to lockdowns in China for Covid 19 and the global supply chain issues in its UK subsidiary, caused by the war in Ukraine and difficult macroeconomic conditions, said Ravi Singh, head of research at Share India. The problems may affect JLR financially in FY 23. In India, the company's vehicles across commercial vehicle and passenger vehicle segments including EVs remained robust, which positively impacted Tata Motors sales in the short term. The stock price may show signs of strength to touch the levels of 500 to 500 until Diwali due to festive demand. The JLR sales that contributes to a majority of the Tata Motors revenue is a factor in the long-term outlook of the stock.
