Tata Motors was planning to set a facility overseas to manufacture the Nano. The company is now carrying on extensive tests to ascertain the possibility of setting up shop in Indonesia. The government is very keen on having Tata Motors manufacture the Nano in Indonesia and are drafting various incentives to lure the automaker there. The Nano made in-roads into Sri Lanka and Nepal recently and is scheduled to go on sale in other countries in Asia, including Indonesia by the end of next year. This will increase the popularity of the world’s cheapest car by leaps and bounds.

“They have met with us. They say Indonesia has a stable economy, plenty of skilled workers and they see a good future here. They’re still exploring. So far, there’s no confirmation if they will produce the Nano cars here,” Budi Darmadi, Industry Ministry, transportation chief of Indonesia, said.
