The first 50 Nanos were shipped to Hyderabad in special high-capacity BPU coaches provided by the railways. The cars were delivered from the Pantnagar facility of Tata Motors in Uttrakhand. Tata Motors is currently manufacturing its mother plant for Tata Nano in Sanand in Gujarat but till then the production is being carried out at its Uttrakhand facility.
Tata Motors finished its booking process for Tata Nano in April earlier this year. It has also announced the first list of lucky winner who shall own the car. Most of the customers have received their confirmation letters with the delivering time of the car. However, looking at the present situation and the late delivery schedules many customers are re-thinking about their bookings. Some of them are definitely happy with their early delivery but those having delivery time by late next year are having second thoughts. In fact, some have deliveries scheduled even early 2011!
With the shipments of Nano started from the Uttrakhand unit, India shall soon see the ultra-cheap car of the world running on the streets. A sight nowhere to be seen in the world for at least one year! Will we have tourists clicking pictures to take back home?
