Nano minicar production launch nears

  • 03-Mar-2009 08:24 EST

The so-called "$2,500 car" from India's Tata will see its production launch on March 24, the company announced late last week. Both the production launch date and production location for the Nano minicar are different than originally envisioned by the company. The launch date for the two-cylinder "people's car" was originally slated for late 2008 at a "mother plant" in Singur, West Bengal. Because of protests at that location, Tata decided to locate the mother plant in Sanand, Gujarat, delaying the project. Construction of the plant in Singur almost had been completed. Until construction of the Sanand plant is complete, Tata will produce the four-door, four-seat car at one or more existing Tata plants in India.
