After overcoming rises in commodity prices, protests and subsequent change of production venue, the Tata Nano has defied critics and skeptics to launch commercially today at the The Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in Mumbai, India. Amidst an awe-inspiring amount of security (the Taj was the scene of a horrific terrorist attack last November), the humble "1 Lakh" (= to $1985) car had its big coming out party with over 1,000 guests and 100 media teams on hand to witness the event.
Tata Motors has disclosed that it is working with General Electric's plastics division to develop solutions for its forthcoming ultra-low cost small car.
