Tata Nano to be three times costlier in Nepal?
Naveen Nallappan, Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That's my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!
Tata Motors would soon begin exporting the Tata Nano to Nepal from next month onwards, reports Indian Express. The Nano however would not be as cheap as it is in India, as Tata could price the vehicle at 7 lakh Nepali Rupees (NPR) which equates to 4.36 lakh Indian Rupees.
The cost of the Nano is tripled in Nepal, thanks to the 300% excise duty. The price the Tata Nano, at which it would be sold for in Nepal is in fact much more than what the Tata Nano Europa could cost.
Sipradi Trading Company would be Tata Motors’ distributor in Nepal. Sipradi Trading’s CEO, Shambhu Prasad Dahal said the company will receive the first lot of 5 Tata Nanos by July end. These 5 Nanos would be put for a test run in Nepal before Tata starts exporting large volumes of the Nano.
But with Tata Motors having an order backlog of more than one lakh Nanos, the export of Tata Nanos to foreign markets could anger customers who have been waiting for their Nano patiently right here in India.
