Mr. Karl Slym, MD of Tata Motors, told the media that Tata Motors had planned products for the Indian market until the year 2020. He also said that Tata would be playing in future segments. In Sanand, Tata will be making another vehicle apart from the Nano. Mr. Slym did not reveal the vehicle though.

Mechanical changes

A new 'TA 65' transmission which is a cable shift type is seen (previously it was of the linkage type). This will ensure lesser vibrations and smoother shifts.
