Ratan Tata launches Nano in Mumbai

Nano basic model will be available for Rs. 1,12,735. Tumultous journey over

Mumbai: Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata launched the Nano in Mumbai on Monday evening.

Nano basic model will be available for Rs. 1,12,735 while the luxury model will cost Rs 1,70,335 at Pantnagar. Insurance and road tax will be separate.

Launching the car, Ratan Tata said that the car had given the country an affordable car and "major part of the country will be able to sit in it".

"The journey started six years ago when we overtook what looked like just another business... a business to give Indian families an affordable transport means, a small car which was very low in cost. It is to the credit of the team what we have achieved today," said Tata while launching the car.

"Hopefully we will be able to give the young India a car which was not in their reach to make transport safer for them. I am pleased to say that our promise is kept today to provide a car at Rs 1-lakh. The basic car would be at Rs 1-lakh at the factory gate in Pantnagar," said Tata.
