Tata Recalls Nano To Install Fire Safety Measures
Tata Motors has announced the recall of some of its small car Nano to install safety measures after getting reports of the vehicle catching fire.
"Yes, customers have been informed. Some have been already recalled," Tata Motors Managing Director, India Operations, P M Telang said.
When asked about the number of vehicles to be recalled, Telang said, "We don't know exactly how many vehicles will be recalled as we have to check how many Nanos have to be rectified."
There are about 70,000 Nanos on the roads now.
One day back, Tata Motors Group CEO and Managing Director Carl-Peter Forster had said that the auto maker would introduce additional safety features in the small car in the wake of reports of the car catching fire.
"The company has taken up several corrective measures and will now offer cover tool on catalytic converter to prevent the car from catching fire. It will also install fuse in electrical components to avoid short circuits," he said before.
Tata’s Nano faced six incidents of the car catching fire including an incident in August. However, the car was then declared ‘absolutely safe without any manufacturing defects’.
