Tata Nano, the world's cheapest car, is coming to Detroit and will be on display for the US audience for the first time next week.
Tata Technologies, part of the Tata Group, would put Nano for display on January 14 during a press meet at the
Detroit Science Center, where Tata's rivals would display their latest cars at the Detroit auto show.
With regional headquarters in Michigan near Chicago, Tata Technologies would "show the car to highlight its end-to-end
vehicle engineering and design capabilities to its auto industry customers".
"The innovative thinking that brought the Tata Nano to market is symbolic of what Tata Technologies has to offer the
automotive industry," Tata Technologies' President and COO Warren Harris said.
The announcement came just a day after Tata Group Chief Ratan Tata said at the ongoing Auto Expo in New Delhi
that the company will consider launching Nano in the US in the next three years.
He had said there was a market for the Nano not only in developing countries but also in developed countries.
Nano was introduced at the Delhi Auto Show in January 2009 and retails for about $2,500 (Rs one lakh) in India.
