Tata Motors is ready to do just about everything possible to hike sales of the Nano. Introduced to the world in 2009 as the world's cheapest car, the car has had every possible upgrade till date, including future plans of introducing a AMT variant of the Nano.
Tata Motors had already showcased the AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) variant of the Nano during the 2014 Auto Expo.
When introduced in 2009, the car was marketed as the world's cheapest car and also with a dream of making more people own cars.
The car faced many hurdles from the day it was launched, including shifting of its manufacturing facility from Singur in West Bengal to Sanand in Gujarat.
During the April to December period of 2014-2015, Tata has managed to sell 11,333 units of Nano, compared to the previous year, when the company sold 13,931 units.
In December 2014, Tata Motors had recorded a sales growth of 30 percent in the passenger vehicle segment, and is eyeing double digit growth after the launch of the Tata Zest and Bolt.
