Proton and Perodua in race for Nano in Malaysia?


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Nano’s export markets are becoming a hotly contested topic on the internet. After Teco’s proposal to introduce Nano is Taiwan, the Malaysian Government is in the talks with the Tata’s to introduce Nano in Malaysia.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin of Malaysia –

Now our automotive policy is more liberal and there are new opportunities. “So we need to study if we can bring in this type of car (Nano) into Malaysia or work with Proton to produce the people’s car

The speculations met its peak when Muhyiddin met Ratan Tata on an official visit to three Indian cities.

Muhyiddin also confirmed that Tata can bring a technical team to hold further discussions with Proton or Perodua.
