The first two test units of the Nano have rolled out from a new assembly line at Tata Motors' Uttarakhand plant. Commercial production of the small car will actually begin at Pantnagar nearly a month before it begins at Singur.
These are the first units of the small car to be actually made on the assembly line as against R&D prototypes that were showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo earlier this January. Some 70 more such test vehicles will be produced to test the assembly line that is being installed at a cost of around Rs 300 crore and is now around 80 per cent complete.
The cars will be subjected to extensive testing before trial production begins, to be followed by commercial production by September-October.
