    Tata Motors is clearly spreading it’s WINGS way beyond India to explore and cater the diverse geographies. Going global would stabilize operations and profits – which wouldn’t be the case if Tata Motors relies excessively on the domestic markets.

    I hope that the XENON, the ACE and the SUPER ACE will go a long way in catering the local and last-mile logistics needs in Philippines.
