Tata Motors to launch Nano in March

With the delays caused by the prolonged Singur agitation behind it, Tata Motors will launch the Nano, the world's cheapest car, at a function in Mumbai on 23 March.

Tata Motors today said that the cars will be on display at Tata Motors dealerships from the first week of April 2009. Bookings will commence from the second week of April 2009.

Since it's unveiling on 10 January, 2008, the Tata Nano has evoked an unprecedented interest in the country, with its website having recorded over 30 million hits in the past one year and the creation of over 6,000 interest groups and communities.

Tata Motors is making arrangements for the widest possible network to book the car, so that prospective customers can conveniently avail of booking facilities at their locations, across the length and breadth of India.

The booking process and other details will be announced on 23 March, 2009.

Earlier, Tatas had planned to roll out the car from Singur in West Bengal, from where it pulled out due to immense political resistance, taking the project to Gujarat in the first week of September (See: Tata's 'Nano' finally homes in on Gujarat)
