Today afternoon, Tata Motors flagged off the Nano Superdrive 2 from Concorde Motors India Ltd situated in Prabhadevi, Mumbai. The success of the Superdrive 1 in changing consumer perceptions on its reliability is one of the reasons behind the second edition. The 28 day voyage will witness 12 Nanos circumambulating India.
Tata will set out to prove the same points in the second round - It wants the Superdrive program to serve as a testimony to the robustness and reliability of the Tata Nano. The second edition is a grand affair - the cars will travel across 62 cities and into remote interiors of some locations. Customers will be invited to engage with these cars on select routes.
Starting from Mumbai the Nanos will touch other cities like Kolhapur, Solapur, Nagpur, Amravati, Aurangabad, Surat, Vadodara, and will culminate in Rajkot.
The drive would have attracted more attention if the diesel variant did the same route. Apart from the robustness and reliability, the car's unmatched fuel economy (which some say is to the tune of 40kmpl), displayed on the car using large decals, would have made jaws drop and eyebrows raise at the unparalleled feat.
