Production preparations for the world's cheapest car, the Tata Nano, are under way at the Tata Motors Singur plant. Sources state, Tata has set a deadline for key vendors, particularly those setup in the adjacent Singur vendor park, to start producing components by August 15 and deliver them within the first week of September. In turn, the first batch of Nano's will be ready by September 15 with their market launch in October as originally planned.

Core criticism for the Nano stems from its accessible pricing, and therefore suggests a sudden movement towards mass motorization in developing nations adversely affecting urban areas where the transportation infrastructure is already overwhelmed in addition to further pollution while increasing demand for oil.

Tata Motors still moves on. German engineering firm, FEV, is currently developing an 800cc turbo CRDI engine for the Nano. Such an engine beats out Daimler for the title of world's smallest engine with common rail technology. Furthermore, French firm, MDI, is working on compressed air technology while a micro-hybrid with stop-start technology is also expected.
