Mumbai, India - Tata’s Nano was the car that was going to revolutionise affordable motoring, debuting to much fanfare just over 10 years ago.
And yet it all went up in smoke, both literally and figuratively, with dismal sales throughout its life and even controversy over reports of cars catching fire.
Now it appears that the Nano's number is up.
Automotive News reports that Tata produced just one Nano last month, while also quoting Tata as previously stating that the car in its present form “cannot continue beyond 2019."
If there is a successor on the way, it certainly hasn’t been announced at this stage, and if history is anything to go by, a similarly-positioned car would not make any business sense.
