Tata Nano In Sl

Recommended Posts

Was going down duplication road today, and to my suprise I noticed a nano on display at the D*MO showroom...

So I guess the car that has had so much fuss made about it - not just in india but in many european countries too- has finally landed in Sri Lanka...

Wonder what it's price is here.... (Obviously absurd in comparison to anywhere else)

Amen for that

Car price 2.5 Lakhs + 7.5 Lakhs tax?

No, i'm not reserecting this thread to ask about the fuel consumption of the Nano or the price. But I realized that there were quite a number of threads asking for opinions about basic BN vehicles.

And since most buyers are considering Chinese and Korean products, why not look at the Nano as well. Considering the small engine and the low CIF price, it should give all those Maruti 800s a run for its money. And from the experience I've had at D*MO (service staff) they seem a a lot better than A*W in customer care.

If D*MO looks into it and play their cards right, they can surely dig into that vast maruti (Brand new <1.0million) market...

I think you are right. I've forgotten all about the tata cars. Bad marketing I presume?

Good suggestion.The Nano got generally positive reviews from all the europeon car mags,whereas the Marutis would have been ripped apart to shreds if the ever bothered to review one.

And speaking of the Nano.Check this out! http://www.autoblog.com/2010/12/27/why-yes-that-is-a-tata-nano-covered-in-pure-gold/

i saw a banana yellow nano on the road somewhere in kaduwela. never really got used to the 3-nut wheels tho... reminds me too much of a tuk tuk. cute little thing, however... but IMO needs that other side mirror if it's gonna have a ghost of a chance in sl traffic

maybe even a better option for people with low budgets who buy tuk tuks

Can be used for something like a budget taxi as well. :D

Tata Nano Sales Rebound From Record Low as Warranty, Financing Win Buyers:

Tata Motors Ltd.’s sales of the Nano, the world’s cheapest car, rebounded in December from a record low after the automaker more than doubled warranty lengths and offered easier financing terms.

Sales rose to 5,784 from 509 in November, according to a statement from the Mumbai-based automaker today. The December tally, a 60 percent increase from a year earlier, was below the 9,000 monthly sales record achieved in July.

Tata has begun television advertisements, added more sales points in smaller towns and introduced a 99 rupee ($2)-a- month maintenance option to help revive sales of the Nano, which costs as little as 137,555 rupees in New Delhi. Sales had fallen on a month-on-month basis since July because of price increases and safety concerns following at least three fires.

“Tata Motors is now focusing on the Nano because its reputation is riding on it,” said Umesh Karne, a Mumbai-based analyst with BRICS Securities Ltd., who has a ‘buy’ rating on the stock. “Measures such as easy financing and the maintenance offer have reassured customers.”

The automaker in December lengthened warranties to four years or 60,000 kilometers (37,282 miles) and added the maintenance plan.

I found the following TED talk really interesting. Includes making of the Nano, among other things.

What ever happened to the new Micro model that was designed in SL.

They should develope that model and try and replace the 3 whelers or give some competition for the Nano.

In the microcars website there is a link which directs you to the model designed in SL and theres a pic of it as well.

Micro should have tried to develope the locally designed model and after that gone into manufacturing busses and other models.

Thats true but micro cars arnt exactly cheap now is it ? they cant mass produce cars so they have to sell for a little higher price, that was okay when the tax for imports were really high.but now since the tax has come down prices of jap cars have gone down. statistically speaking if taxes are reduces further they will probably go bankrupt in no time ( i hope it doesn't happen)
