Industry Reaction to Nano


Well the most awaited Car of the decade is here. I had a dream to buy iPod Nano Now add one more Nano to it.

Most of the so called fast and reliable news channels had to put their feet in mouth when the name of the car was announced as ‘Nano’ instead of what was reported earlier by giving reference to ‘internal source’ as ‘Jeh’.

Here is the industry opinion about the Car but before that I want to tell you the opinion of the class that matters the most. Overworked underpaid civil professionals like me can now get closer to their dream .

ASHOK SINGH, CONSTABLE, DELHI POLICE:”It is a dream come true. I look forward to buying that car. My wife will be really happy.”

JAGDISH KHATTAR, FORMER MANAGING DIRECTOR, MARUTI SUZUKI:

“The car is good to look at. There is a space in the market between two-wheelers and the 800 (Maruti’s small car). It will be a success if they deliver what they promised. And I see no reason why they can’t.”

RAMESH SURI, CHAIRMAN, SUBROS:

“The best thing is that they have kept the price at levels promised at concept stage. It is good to look at. I can’t say about the driving experience as I have not taken a trial.”

SHINZO NAKANISHI, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF MARUTI SUZUKI INDIA LTD (speaking before the unveiling): “We cannot make a cheaper car. We don’t know how to make a 1-lakh car unless we sacrifice something. We won’t go below the 800 in our product line-up.”

Maruti Suzuki’s mini 800, priced at nearly double the Tata car, was the cheapest in the market. Asked about the impact of the Tata car on Maruti’s sales, Nakanishi said: “There may be some impact.”

ANAND MAHINDRA, MANAGING DIRECTOR, MAHINDRA & MAHINDRA LTD (speaking before the unveiling):

“I think it’s a moment of history and I’m delighted an Indian company is leading the way.”

VENU SRINIVASAN, CHAIRMAN & MANAGING DIRECTOR, TVS MOTOR CO:

“It is fantastic, outstanding engineering. It helps redefine the sector in the country. It has established new grounds.”

P. SAM, GROUP HEAD, MARKETING AND SALES, YAMAHA MOTOR INDIA SALES PVT LTD:

“The 1-lakh rupee car is not going to impact our potential customers. Our customers would buy our products for the sheer joy of riding.”

ONKAR KANWAR, APOLLO TYRES LTD:

“I congratulate Tata. He has delivered what he promised.”

ASHOK SINGH, CONSTABLE, DELHI POLICE:

“It is a dream come true. I look forward to buying that car. My wife will be really happy.”

G. COLQUHOUN, READER IN MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS, SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, LIVERPOOL:

“This is an important step for Asian markets. I look forward to this car being introduced in European markets.”

  1. Yeah even i wonder if Tata’s are gonna make profits from this venture.
    But given Tata’s track record they can do anything. They ate up Chorus like nothing…

  2. Yeah. I this the way T20 is expected to hurt ODI more than test cricket, this cute little thing is gonna compete with two wheelers rather than the big cars.

  3. good comparison. I will appreciate it more if it hurts the Rickshaw and tumtum’s in Puna πŸ™‚

    The real cause of congestion in puna at least is Rickshaw rather than personal vehicles.

  4. Consider SHINZO NAKANISHI’s response.
    He is admitting that its not possible for him to make that kind of car. hence the skepticism.

  5. hey only few lines are copy pasted. Do you expect me to right the opinion of Mr. SHINZO NAKANISHI on my own?
    I am capable of doing that as well

  6. side effects of nano…….car

    infront of a show room …man with scooter……”exchange offer hain kya”

    at the booking counter…”do dena”

    during elections…..”tv vaigaire purani baat hai car deneka vaada kijiye….”

    a kid in a toy shop….”papa ye wali nahi wo wali (pointing towards nano)”

    main side effect……not to forget

    there will be no parking place….specially in metropolitan cities…….

  7. But I believe that the common man too has a right to improve his quality of life.
    Its governments fault that they dont bring proper roads
