Big rush on Tata

NT News - Motoring - - NEWS -

DE­MAND for the cheapest car in the world has over­whelmed the Tata fac­tory.

About 30,000 In­di­ans who put down their names for the Nano have can­celled their book­ings be­cause of the back­log of or­ders de­lay­ing pro­duc­tion. Un­til re­cently the com­pany held 207,000 or­ders for the car. But many prospec­tive buy­ers, who have al­ready waited al­most 12 months, are mov­ing to other brands.

Tata has shrugged off con­cerns, say­ing that some can­celled book­ings are not un­usual. The ca­pac­ity of the com­pany’s Pant­na­gar plant is lim­ited but Tata plans to de­liver 100,000 cars by the end of the year.
