Tata Nano to Be Offered with 4-Year Warranty
But sales of the Nano model are still far from what the Indian manufacturer expected when it officially rolled out the car. The company delivered only 509 Nanos last month, with overall sales now totaling 71,300 units since the car's debut in July last year. November 2010 was the forth straight month of falling sales from the high of 9,000 cars in July this year.
Curiously, in July 2010, one year after the car's public debut, Tata Motors decided to increase Nano's prices by four percent, although sales were not so impressive.
"Despite a steep increase in input prices, Nanos are being priced only 3%-4% higher, depending on the model, than the price announced at launch,” the Indian manufacturer said in a press statement rolled out in July 2010. “The terms and conditions of booking had provided that the applicable price of the car for a retainee-customer would be notified at the time of delivery."
"The Tata Nano has already received an overwhelming response," Tata Motors added, although the current sales figures are showing that the world's cheapest car is not so appealing to global customers.
