In the summer of 2008 Tata Motor’s announced that it had successfully purchased the Land Rover and Jaguar brands from Ford Motors for UK £2.3 million. Two of the World’s luxury car brand have been added to its portfolio of brands, and will undoubtedly off the company the chance to market vehicles in the luxury segments. 4.

5. Nano is the cheapest car in the World – retailing at little more than a motorbike. Whilst the World is getting ready for greener alternatives to gas-guzzlers, is the Nano the answer in terms of concept or brand? Incidentally, the new Land Rover and Jaguar models will cost up to 85 times more than a standard Nano! 6. The new global track platform is about to be launched from its Korean (previously Daewoo) plant. Again, at a time when the World is looking for environmentally friendly transport alternatives, is now the right time to move into this segment?

With Brazil’s economy growing rapidly, cities have become increasingly clogged by traffic—and, as in China, affluent buyers no longer accept “cast-offs”, the decades-old models that global makers used to sell in backwater economies. Consumers want the latest and greatest, and competition is forcing carmakers to comply, often by developing offerings for Brazil. And even cars not specifically designed for the Brazilian market must be adapted: ethanol is the fuel of choice for many Brazilians (the government is encouraging its production from abundant sugar cane crops in order to hold down expensive oil imports).(applicable if nano is using ethanol) (http://www.economist.com/blogs/schumpeter/2012/10/brazils-car-industry)
