Tata Motors’ car factory at Sanand, is working to reduce the waiting period of its latest hatchback, the Tiago, before it starts producing the sedan variant on the same platform.
The country’s largest automobile firm is again in the news after Tata Motors’ most discussed project, the Nano car, came for adverse comment from the group’s former chairman after his recent dismissal. The Tatas’ shifted to Sanand primarily to make the Nano.
The company had so far delivered close to 25,000 Tiagos of an overall booking of around 50,000. In fact, the source claimed, “There is a clear direction from the management to ramp up the production of the car, which has been well received by the market, and reduce the waiting period.”
Sanand would also be making a sedan variant on the same Tiago platform. “Its launch might get slightly delayed as the plant is working to reduce the Tiago wait period. Sanand is making close to 5,000 Tiagos a month now, up significantly from the 3,000 a month it was making a couple of months earlier. The plan is to further raise output.
