Tata Motors is getting ready to roll out fewer Nano model early next year. The company wants some of its customers to get the feel and touch of its most awaited model that will roll out from company’s Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand.

"We are looking at something to bring it (out) as fast as possible ... kind of an interim arrangement ... from one of our existing plants. These will be small quantities. Let a few customers at least have a touch and feel of the car," Ravi Kant, the company's managing director said. "Larger quantities of the car will be rolled out from Sanand after a year or so,” he added.

Kant denied that Nano will roll out from its Gujarat plant this year. He stated that it will take at least a year for the Nano to roll out from the Gujarat plant. He also did not comment on the number of cars that will roll out from its ‘interim location’. The most probable launch date for first few models of Tata Nano is between January to March 2009.

Tata Motors’ Nano project was hit hard earlier this year when the company had to shut down its “nearly complete” production unit and shift its base from West Bengal to Gujarat. Tata Nano is one of the most awaited models in across the globe as it is destined to be the world’s cheapest car.
