Tata Motors Now Turns to Mexico

Tata Motors is reportedly planning to produce its cars in Mexico for the North American market. In fact, the Indian car maker is currently talking to a Mexican firm who, if negotiations go well, would make Tata vehicles in Mexico under a contract manufacturing deal. If the contract is made, the firm will manufacture Tata Indica hatchback model, Indigo Manza Sedan and Nano which is widely considered as world’s cheapest car.

Meanwhile, Rajiv Dube, the president of the passenger car division of Tata Motors, has left the company. It created a big surprise in the Indian auto industry as Mr. Dube was involved with the auto operations of Tata Group for 27 years including 12 years with Tata Motors. He has also been overseeing the passenger car division for the last 5 years. Company insiders said Rajiv Dube may have felt that he would not be able to progress further in Tata Motors.
