Tata Nano to roll out first batch from Pantnagar by early 2009

Tata has geared up to roll out its first batch of Tata Nano cars by the first quarter of 2009 from its Pantnagar facility in Uttarakhand. After the Singur walkout, it has become evident that Tata Nano is going to miss its promised launch by the end of this calendar year.

Reliable sources say that the Indian automaker has already begun Nano's production at its Pantnagar existing facility. And it has reportedly asked its vendors to supply components for only 3,500 - 4,000 Nanos on a monthly basis for now.

Working towards an early and quality release of the Tata Nano, a group of Tata Motors officials would be meeting the Uttarakhand government by the first week of November'08. The meeting would thrash out all details about its initial plans for Nano, until its mother plant at Sanand in Gujarat is ready for commercial production.

Another source said that the Tatas are also eyeing an integrated land of about 1,100 acres at Pantnagar to manufacture both the Ace pick-up truck and Tata Nano in tandem.
