Tata Motors regrets Nano catching fire
Mumbai: Tata Motors on Tuesday said it felt
remorse over the fact that one of its Nanos caught fire
recently in the city.
"One such odd incident (of the Nano car catching fire)
was reported. We are remorseful about what happened," Tata
Motors managing director-India Prakash Telang told reporters
on the sidelines of a function here today. "We are yet to
identify what happened. It is under investigation," he said.
Last year, a few Nano cars emitted smoke but the company
said this problem was identified and rectified.
Talang said the new Nano car plant in Sanand, Gujarat,
will be operational in the first quarter of next fiscal. "The
Sanand plant will start production soon, may be in a month or
two," he said. The backlog of around 2-lakh Nanos (booking)
will be cleared by this December, he said.
At the function, Tata Sons chairman Ratan Tata handed
over six Nanos to Smile Train, a charity organisation that
helps children with cleft by providing free cleft surgery.
These cars will be used by six hospitals across the country,
to raise awareness for the problem of cleft and a simple
surgery which can correct it, Smile Train`s co-founder
and president Brian Mullaney said.
