Tata’s Nano has reached Navi Mumbai. It was historic moment when the batch of Nano cars was distributed to the customers at an automobile showroom in Nerul. The keys were handed over to the vehicle owners at the hands of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik in the presence of MP Dr. Sanjeev Naik and NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik.
When the Nano entered the automobile market, United State President Barrack Obama challenged the U.S. automakers to create a credible model to survive and succeed in the competitive global market. Don't dismiss the Nano as a small, poor man's car that will cause a mere ripple on the world market. The Nano is a radical innovation, with the potential to revolutionize automobile manufacturing and distribution. Popularly known as “the People’s Car” – the Nano has reached Navi Mumbai as well. The first batch of six Nano cars was handed over to the proud owners of the car in an automobile showroom in Nerul at the hands of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik in the presence of Thane MP Dr. Sanjeev Naik and NMMC Standing Committee Chairman Sandeep Naik. And when they got a chance, how could the Ministers and his sons miss the chance to experience what it feels like sitting in the people's car.
Over the environmental concerns that are being raised with Tata Nano’s launch, Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik said that the idea of the Nano shifting to gas should be promoted. Nano has also given hope to persons with disabilities to have a car of their own provided that the Tata’s consider designing disabled friendly vehicles. Vikram Sinha, the Head of Corporate Relations of Tata Motors says that they would consider this seeing the demands. Excited Tata Nanos owners too spoke to us.
Experts feel that the problems of energy scarcity, environmental pollution and road congestion should not discourage Ratan Tata from making and selling as many Nanos as he can. First, the Nano is more energy efficient and affordable than any other car. Moreover, the explosion of vehicles will force regulators to control pollution, pressure governments to build better roads and motivate innovators to produce more efficient engines. The Nano has the potential of flourishing despite the recession or softening its sting because of its extraordinary low price. It's a radical innovation precisely because it is a poor man's car.
