Tata in June inaugurated a new plant in India for its $2500 Nano. The plant, with an initial capacity of 250,000 units/year, is located in Sanand, Gujarat. Production was slated to begin by the end of June. The 250,000-unit volume is to be achieved in phases, with the plant capable of expansion to 350,000 cars/year. There is room on the plant site for additional facilities for further expansion. The Nano is produced at other plants in India and has been on sale since March 2009. Built in 14 months starting in November 2008, the integrated facility at Sanand comprises the vehicle assembly plant and an adjacent vendor park. Tata had almost completed construction of a plant for the Nano in West Bengal, but land-protest hostilities against the company led it to abandon that plant and build one in Gujarat instead.
