Tata has been going very steady with the Common Man's car Tata Nano and strategically reopens its bookings in the scheduled states so as the customers reetain the level of interest in the car . It is doing amazingly well and has given the brand a lot of support and is expected to become the back bone of its sales in a few months from now.
In April we had informed you about Tata's plans of launching a larger car, expected to be called as Tata Dolphin falling in the segment exactly above the Tata Nano's since after the launch of the Nano, the brand has very accurately predicted the demands of the Indian customers.
Tata's CEO Carl-Peter Forster at the launch of Tata Aria confirmed the introduction of this new bigger car in 2012 and will compete against the Maruti Suzuki Alto and other 800CC cars in its segment. It is also said that the car's project is on the final stages of completion and the company has already approached the local vendors for further proceedings.
Now that the brand has already achieved a new position with introduction of Nano, its aspirations of competing against the largest selling car Alto does not surprise us. The segment that the Tata's will be targeting at with the new car covers almost 70% of the total market and if it succeeds leaving Alto behind, then it will definitely emerge as the ultimate car manufacturer.
But if you think this is only new product down the line for this segment then we ought to tell you that even Hyundai is preparing to enter it with a 800CC machine speculated to be the cheapest of them all. Whatever may be the case at the end of the day its the customers who will get benefited.

Ford would have never expected Ford Figo to be such a tremendous hit in the Indian Automobile market as the car's success is gaining more and more pace day by day. It is really great for a brand like Ford which a few years back wasn't able to impress the Indian buyers, but now things have drastically changed.
Ford Fiesta and the Figo acted as the breakthroughs for the brand helping the company get back into the competition and get a firmer hold. The steadily rising Figo sales is definitely a reason for the company's celebration and making things even better is the latest news on the Figo which has made it bag a position in the top selling model's list.
Yes its true, Figo has successfully bagged the 5th best selling car position after replacing Tata Indica, putting the company in the top five list for the very first time in the history of Indian automobile industry. For the past 10 years the Indica was at the 5th position and now that Ford's product is on the same position, the company's content seems no end.
Nigel Wark, Executive Director (Marketing, Sales & Service), Ford India said, "Our object was to go after providing a high value for money product in the marketplace and that has grown Ford's reputation here. Figo was a big step as it helped Ford Motor Co. to get away from the niche to the mainstream segment. We are not complacent (after getting in to the top five), we will seize this opportunity by continuing to boost dealerships and increase service network,"
The list for the top five selling models is as follows:
1. Maruti Suzuki Alto 30,000 units
If you are thinking this might be a moment for the company to leave work and celebrate then you could be wrong as its future strategies are impressive and aggressive as well since it plans to introduce 8 new models in the coming 5 years.
