Tata Motors is planning to exports the Nano to various countries including Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Thailand and Africa by the end of 2011. The commencement of exports will help Tata Motors expand its target market and decrease its dependancy on its home market. The company will start with a small consignment of 1000 units to test the waters. As the car market in the aforementioned countries are quite same as the Indian car market, the Nano would not need any major modifications. The Nano factory costs Tata Motors Rs. 200 crore, and the export operation will only help them recover their money faster.
