A report on DailyNews Sri Lanka says that about 1,000 Tata Nano cars have been sold since its introduction in Sri Lanka in early 2011. Even though the Nano costs twice as much in the CBU form, private and fleet customers in equal measure took a shine to the world's cheapest car.
Tata vehicles distributor DIMO offers 24X7 assistance for Nano customers and identified new target groups including taxi cab operators amongst whom the Nano is a big hit. The Nano's outstanding fuel economy is cited as a main reasons for the car's sales success. The Nano draws interest from Sri Lankans regardless of their financial status. Incidentally it is also Sri Lanka's first car offered with a four year/90k kilometers warranty.
Back home, Tata Motors have dispatched an improved version to the dealer yards. The launch of the new series is expected to take place in the coming days.
