Tata Nano has been the much awaited car since last year and the interest of the people in Nano has only increased. The word is in the air that Tata’s may be making the symbolic statement this Republic Day.
According to highly placed sources at top Tata Dealers “Yes we have inputs that clearly indicate that Nano will roll out on 26 January. We are preparing for that and people are optimistic about it. There is an unending customer list registered for Nano and whenever booking starts these customers will get top priority”.
“Tata will debut Nano in the first quarter of 2009 at any cost but there is no surety of the exact date. January 26 may be the best day for the roll out as it has national significance” said Adil Jal Daukhanwala, Editor in Chief, Times Zigwheel
Internal sources in the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) claim that Nano has cleared ARAI tests in October.
Another highly placed TATA source thinks January 26 too early for the roll out, however the call will definitely hit the market before March.
