Tata Nano

Executive Summary

Tata nano is supposedly the cheapest car in the world to have been introduced. The inexpensive, four passenger city car, that has its engine in its rear is the creation of an Indian company by the name of Tata motors who initially aimed it in the Indian domestic market In March 2009. It was given the nickname of ''one lac car'' because of its price which is near Indian one lac rupees. The vision of the chair man of Tata Motors is to make this car Tata nano the 'People's car' that can be afforded by almost everybody. (www.tatamotors.com)
