Tata Motors, the newest owner of Jaguar and Land Rover revealed its luxury options of the $2,500 Nano microcar. Although you expect the car to be as simple as it can due to its low price, the Indian manufacturer introduced some „luxury” options for the cheapest car in the world.

Tata launched a customization website that allows its customers to choose between a standard and a luxury line, to decide wether they want or not alloy wheels. The clients can also choose the scoop trims, decals, fog lamps and seat covers. For all the fans of sport cars the bad news is that the 30 hp engine remains the same.

Caparo, the manufacturer of the super-advanced Caparo T1 , will build body structures for the Tata Nano . Caparo has been manaufacturing similar items for other auto makers in India for the last three years. Their customer list also boasts of JCB and Ashok Leyland.

60% of the assemblies will be taken care by Caparo. The structural panels will be pressed and assembled at the factory in Sin Sin gur, West Bengal, where the car will be manufactured. To keep the costs down, Caparo has used a new semi automated production line with zero fault forward quality control systems that will ensure maximum efficiency.

"The body technology is relatively conventional, but the manufacturing technology is the result of very sophisticated analysis to ensure high-quality, low cost production," said Caparo Group CEO Angad Paul.

The reason why Tata has handed this task to Caparo is because of their good reputation for producing high quality components, and they also supply components to rival Maruti Suzuki’s 800.

The $2500 car from Tata Motors is coming to Europe in 4 year’s time. The Nano was unveiled last month at the Delhi Autoexpo and if everything goes as per plan, the car will rock the world.

But before it begins its European innings, the car has to evolve and meet international standards. "We will develop a successor model in four years time, which will meet the Euro 5 emission regulations and the crash standards in Europe," Girish Wagh was quoted as saying by Focus in an advance abstract on Sunday.

Tata is apparently pushing hard to bring down the fuel consumption of the Nano from 5lit/100 km to 3lit/100 km. Tata will concentrate on selling the car on home turf before it heads to developing countries like southeast Asia, Latin America and African countries. Production will begin in October this year, and the company plans to produce about 250,000 units and eventually escalating to about a million units annually.

This car will address the cost-conscious customers, whether in India or abroad. The European version is expected to have a bigger engine, airbags, disc brakes up front and reengineered crumple zones. It might also come with a CVT option and upgraded styling. Would you buy it?
