Re: Tata Nano to get the First Upgrade

Thats a stupid irresponsible advertisement promoting reckless driving with a Nano![frustration] Notice the part between 0.24 and 0.27. Why does every other automotive ad have to be about reckless driving?

Re: Tata Nano to get the First Upgrade

:sorry: buddy whats reckless?? they are only over taking trucks!
Not like that and the way they are doing it is whats called Reckless.

And thats the exact problem with such ads, When they show it in an advertisement youngsters tend to think that its the proper way to overtake and follow suit. Sometimes they get caught by the authorities, Sometimes they end up in a mishap.

Overtaking through the left side and driving zig zag is against the Law and irresponsible. Tata should be more responsible and edit that part from the commercial.

Re: Tata Nano to get the First Upgrade

New Tata Nano 2012 Highlights:

- More fuel efficiency at 25.4 kmpl
- New premium interiors
- New vibrant colours
- Best-in-class air-conditioning
- Lowest CO2 emission, among cars in India

Tata Motors today announced for the Tata Nano introduction of a bouquet of features -- of new colours, new interiors, a more powerful gasoline engine and even greater fuel efficiency of 25.4 kmpl, further improving on its record as India’s most fuel efficient petrol car. The car is already available at dealerships, at the same price as before. Making the Tata Nano even more desirable, the car’s 624cc engine has been made more powerful delivering an impressive 38PS of power (earlier 35 PS) and 51Nm of torque (earlier 48 Nm). Yet fuel efficiency, already a high point with Tata Nano owners, has been taken to a new high of 25.4 kmpl (earlier 23.6 kmpl) as certified by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). The high fuel efficiency, with a low kerb weight of 600 kg, ensures that the Tata Nano at 92.7 gm / km has the lowest CO2 emission among cars in India. With a top speed of 105 km and ability to negotiate inclines with a gradeability of 30%, and a class-leading turning radius of just 4 metres, the Tata Nano is a perfect combination of power and performance.

The ride and handling, also already highly appreciated by existing owners, now has become even better with a revised suspension set-up, including an anti-roll bar at the front, and a steering mechanism made even easier. While the cabin is quiet, a racier sounding exhaust note now gives the Tata Nano a more assertive road presence. Booster-assisted brakes, already available in the Nano CX and the LX, have now been added to the Nano Standard as well. The Nano CX and LX now have tip-tap mirrors on both the driver and passenger sides. For the Nano Standard, which already has a driver side mirror, the passenger side one can be installed as an accessory. The interiors are completely new with enhanced premiumness in look and feel – luxurious beige in the Nano LX, rich black in the Nano CX and stunning medium graphite in the Standard version. The exteriors are now a veritable vibgyor of 10 colours, eight of them new -- Pearl White, Rouge Red, Aqua Blue, Neon Rush, Serene White, Meteor Silver, Mojito Green, Papaya Orange, Sunshine Yellow, and Champagne Gold. New half or full wheel caps accentuate the distinctiveness.

The Variants and Features:

  • Tata Nano Standard: The standard version comes with three colour options -- Rouge Red, Aqua Blue, Serene White along with clear headlamps, tubeless tyres and tip-tap driver side mirror, booster-assisted brakes and front suspension with anti-roll bar. The interiors comprise dual-tone vinyl seats and fold-down rear seat.

  • Tata Nano CX: The Nano CX comes in six colour options -- Rouge Red, Champagne Gold, Neon Rush, Meteor Silver, Papaya Orange and Serene White. The interiors have been refreshed with trendy black fabric seats, ebony black interiors, fold-down rear seat with nap rest. Besides these, the variant offers best-in-class air-conditioning with heating (optional), parcel shelf, booster-assisted brakes, tip-tap mirrors on driver and passenger side and half wheel covers.

  • Tata Nano LX: The top-end variant comes loaded with features like premium beige fabric seats, central locking, door handles, front power windows, cup holder in front console, provision for 12V socket, body coloured bumpers, fog lamps, electronic trip meter, rear spoiler, full wheel covers and tip-tap mirrors on driver and passenger side and booster-assisted brakes. The Nano LX comes in six premium colours -- Pearl White, Papaya Orange, Mojito Green, Sunshine Yellow, Meteor Silver and Champagne Gold.

All the variants come with an unmatched warranty of 4 years or 60,000 kms, whichever is earlier. The Tata Nano will continue to be available at the same price. The Tata Nano is priced (ex-showroom, Delhi), at Rs.1.40 lakhs for the Nano Standard, Rs.1.70 lakhs for the Nano CX and Rs.1.96 lakhs for the Nano LX. The Tata Nano is available across 676 outlets. Customers can buy the Tata Nano at an extremely low down-payment, starting from Rs.15,000, and high tenure financing (up to 60 months).

Re: Tata Nano to get the First Upgrade

The interiors look great now. And the upgrade on the power figures along with the suspension is also a great idea. Think Tata's done good this time.

Nano qoutes-icing on cake. (old one though)

“In an ideal world, after the small car has been launched and is successful, that would be a nice time for me to exit,” -Ratan Tata

“We can not make a Rs one lakh car. Our engineers have said they cannot do it.” - Shinzo Nakanishi, MD Maruthi Suzuki India

“Since, a promise is a promise the standard dealer version will cost Rs 1 lakh” - Ratan Tata releasing the Nano to the world
An official of Hyundai Motors said “We definitely see it as impacting our sales” he said in halting English, preferring to maintain anonymity

“I observed families riding on two-wheelers — the father driving the scooter, his young kid standing in front of him, his wife seated behind him holding a little baby. It led me to wonder whether one could conceive of a safe, affordable, all-weather form of transport for such a family.
Tata Motors’ engineers and designers gave their all for about four years to realise this goal. Today, we indeed have a People’s Car, which is affordable and yet built to meet safety requirements and emission norms, to be fuel efficient and low on emissions. We are happy to present the People’s Car to India and we hope it brings the joy, pride and utility of owning a car to many families who need personal mobility,” - Ratan Tata releasing Nano to world

“I am having nightmares” - Chief U.N. climate scientist Rajendra Pachauri. Nobel Peace Prize winner. Talking about TATA 1 lakh car

“Pachauri will not have a nightmare and Sunita Narain can also sleep” - Tata talking about emission standards

“My skepticism about the Tata car is not about Tata’s ability to put it together but to put it together at the price of Rs 1 lakh. It is not fair to say that Rs 1 lakh is the ex-factory price — our two-stroke directly injected three wheeler, which is nowhere close to a car, costs close to Rs 1 lakh to the customer. I still haven’t heard them (the Tatas) say it will be profitable.” - Rajiv Bajaj of Bajaj Auto

“It is a proud moment for India. It demonstrates India’s technological and entrepreneurial ability. The car will help people move from two-wheeler to four-wheeler and it will leap-frog the two-wheeler,” It fulfills the need of the common Indian who aspires to move from a two-wheeler to a four-wheeler“- Kamal Nath. Minister of Commerce. Govt Of India

” It is a good car but we need to test it,” “Only the Tata’s can explain how they managed to achieve it.” - Jagdish Khattar, former chairman and managing director of Maruti Udyog

“The key thing, therefore, is not the price of the car but the running cost” - Rajiv Bajaj of bajaj Auto

“I think it is a great thing for India because mobility is giving new opportunities. I hope Tata is driving a great success with the Rs one lakh car, but it is not our plan.” - Thomas Kuehl SkodaAuto India Board Member

“The Rs one lakh car is a good decision and a good intention, but as far as Volkswagen is concerned producing a Rs one lakh car is a pure no because meeting the quality standards and safety is not feasible at all in such a model” - Andreas Prinz Volkswagen Group Sales India Managing Director (Passenger Cars)

“It is fantastic, outstanding engineering. It helps redefine the sector in the country. It has established new grounds.” - Venu Srinivasab MD TVS

“The more, the merrier. Fundamentals of the two-wheeler industry are strong and Rs one lakh car is not something which we are worried about.” - Anil Dua, VP Sales and
Marketing, Hero Honda Motors


“Every car has its own buyers and I am sure this car would also have its set of customers, but this segment does not excite us.” - Karl Slym GM President and Managing Director

“The 1-lakh rupee car is not going to impact our potential customers. Our customers would buy our products for the sheer joy of riding.” - P.Sam Head Sales. Yamaha

“In the marketplace, the best wins. I am quite willing to fight in the marketplace. I urge all players to fight in the market” - Ratan Tata

“The best thing is that they have kept the price at levels promised at concept stage. It is good to look at. I can’t say about the driving experience as I have not taken a trial.” - Ramesh Suri, Chairman, Subros

“I think it’s a moment of history and I’m delighted an Indian company is leading the way.“ – Anand Mahindra of Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd

“I congratulate Tata. He has delivered what he promised.” - Onkar Kanvar Apollo Tyres

ACI review is up and is quite positive. I think better exhaust note, interior and colorful exteriors will definitely result in more buyers. Most importantly, they have not increased the price.

In any case, timely refreshed/update is essential for boosting up the sluggish sale. Fiat India should have taken this cue much earlier.
