Tata Nano will be available off the shelf by August-September, negating the need to book it in advance, a senior company officer said in Panaji on Wednesday.
"From this August or September, customers will be able to walk into our showroom and drive out in a Nano," Manoj Arora, Senior Manager, Tata Motors, told reporters.
Arora said that setting up a manufacturing facility at Sanand (Gujarat) will help the company deliver cars faster.
Tata Motors has been producing limited units of the Nano at its Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand.
The company had taken bookings for only 1.55 lakh units through a lottery after the Nano was launched on March 23, 2009. Out of the total, only one-lakh units were price-protected and the company was scheduled to deliver them by this year-end.
At present, there are 35,000 Nanos plying on Indian roads. "The Sananad facility can manufacture 2.5 lakh units per annum," he said.
