Do you remember the problems Tata is facing as it gets ready to build the Nano, the world's cheapest car? Well, the Indian manufacturer has now officially decided to move the location of the factory. The new plant will be built in Sanand, India (that's near Ahmedabad, in the state of Gujarat). The plant will be quite large, covering 1,100 acres (445 ha), and have an initial capacity of 250,000 units annually, which could be expanded to up to 500,000 cars per year, Tata said. Although initial plans aimed for production to start this month, it seems that the new cars will now roll out next March. Our source also reports that a CNG and an all-electric version of the Nano are on the drawing board.
