Tata Motors is gearing up to produce the Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor in record volumes this festive season. The plant in Sanand, Gujarat, which makes the models, hit 100 percent utilization this month, prompting India's third largest carmaker to add a third shift to increase production by about 20 percent. The third shift will start before the festive season, which every year sees a spike in vehicle sales.
