Nano's plunge into lowness has been all around recorded yet regardless it makes for a drawing in read. At its crest in 2011-12, its deals touched 74,527 units. It has been a descending slide as far back as regardless of rehashed endeavours at propping it up including giving it a full facelift with the GenX Nano loaded with a programmed transmission in 2015. Nothing has worked.
The shame of being a modest auto and inquiries over its quality and sturdiness that initially surfaced after twelve autos burst into flames in its underlying days, have stuck. Last monetary, just 1852 units were sold. That is route not as much as what Maruti 800 and Hyundai Santro sold in its last a long time before they were ended in the market.
Gossipy tid bits about the finish of the street of the Nano have circled for a long while and even beyond words self assured person will battle to put forth a defense for the Nano now. However, given that it was a fantasy venture of Tata Group Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata, it is a delicate subject in the meeting rooms of Tata Motors. Most senior administrators decline to talk on the eventual fate of the auto and the individuals who do are generally cautious about it.
"People are targetting Nano for no reasons. The only model (in passenger vehicles) that makes money is Indica, every other model makes losses," Tata Group administrator N Chandrasekaran had told a TV channel a year ago. "Nano's loss on yearly basis is only about 4 per cent of the losses that our passenger cars make, so whether you shut down Nano whether you give it a life, the number is not going to change and this is not a billion-dollar question in front of Tata Motors."
The inquiries on its survival have persevered in the midst of bits of gossip every now and then that the organization is thinking about closing down its generation at the Sanand processing plant. Last financial, a little more than 1700 units of the auto were created.
"We can't just switch off one product and switch on another," Chandrasekaran, had said in light of investors' inquiries on Tata Nano's future at Tata Motors' 72nd yearly broad gathering in August a year ago.
Nano likewise ended up at the focal point of the discussion amongst Tata and previous executive of the gathering Cyrus Mistry in the fag end of 2016 when the last charged that the auto had achieved a pinnacle loss of Rs 1,000 crore. Mistry would go ahead to state that Tata Motors was not able close down the venture because of enthusiastic reasons. The disappointment of the auto has as much to do with the tag of a shoddy auto as the way that Indian shoppers are more optimistic today and lean toward a greater all the more effective and highlight rich item, It is something that has emptied the whole passage level auto advertise throughout the previous couple of years. While the Alto keeps on being a success, its deals are misguided its pinnacle of 2010-11. Others like the Hyundai Eon and Renault Kwid have additionally discovered development subtle.
Guenther Butschek, the CEO at Tata Motors emphasizes no choice has been gone up against the vehicle's destiny. He is as yet quick to have a vehicle under 12 feet long, which is supported by a few drivers for its common sense in India's congested urban areas. "That's a good piece of the market, and this is where we play the game today with the Nano," Butschek said at the Geneva Motor Show prior this year. "The question is how we are going to play this segment in the future... we have intensive discussions and no decision has been made." The hypothesis that bike shoppers would in the long run graduate to a spending auto remains constant on paper yet appears to be considerably harder to reproduce in actuality.
