article imageWorld's cheapest car Tata Nano gets makeover, sells at same price

By Leo Reyes     Nov 21, 2011 in Business
India's Tata Nano, the world's cheapest car, is getting a makeover after disappointing sales since its release in 2009 and after a drop of about 85 percent in sales last year compared to the figures a year earlier.
To enhance its appeal, the company came up with more colors and improved interiors. It also increased the engine's power and it will be more fuel-efficient.
P.M. Talang, Tata Motors India operations managing director told AFP the changes were based on feedback from Nano owners:
"The low-end car, sold without air conditioning, costs 140,880 rupees ($2,770) while the premium version -- which comes with air conditioning, central locking and power front windows -- sells for 196,959 rupees," the report said.
At its launch in 2009, the price of Nano was less than $2,000.
The economy car is being manufactured by Tata Motors of India, the same company that makes the popular Jaguar and Land Rover in India.
