In view of some recent fire incidents in the world's cheapest car Nano, Tata Motors on Wednesday said it had been decided to provide some additional protection system to the cars.
“We have decided to make the car even more robust...we will do this by providing additional protection in the exhaust system and the electrical system,” the company said in a statement.
“Beginning the third week of November, each owner will be informed about these measures. Option lies with our customers on whether they would like to avail themselves of these measures. This will be provided at no cost to customers,” it said, and denied that the company was not recalling any Nano.
“Tata Nano is a safe car with a robust design, state-of-the-art components and built with an uncompromising attention to quality in all aspects.
Tata Motors further said that the investigation, by a team of internal and international experts, has once again concluded that the reasons for the incidents in few Tata Nano cars are specific to the cars which had such incidents.
“We have noticed instances of additional foreign electrical equipment having been installed or foreign material left on the exhaust system,” it added. Tata Motors has so far delivered over 70,000 Nano cars.
