By winning a gold prize, Nano now has something to cheer about

Tata Nano has lately been in the news for all the wrong reasons. First, a faulty combination switch gear resulting in a short circuit and then two brand new Nanos inexplicably catching fire. However, the company has now something to cheer about.

After bagging several awards on the Indian soil, the Nano has won the gold prize in the 2010 Edison Awards. It takes the top honours in the best new product segment under the Transportation category.

Recognised as America's innovation award, the Edison Awards symbolises the persistence and excellence.
