New starter motor will boost performance. About 1.40 lakh Nanos will benefit from this upgrade.


Tata Motors has announced a ‘replacement exercise’ for all Nano models except the recently launched 2012 Nano.

As part of this exercise, Tata Motors will replace the starter motor with the one that comes in the 2012 Nano.  This will be done free-of-cost and will affect about 1.40 lakh customers nationwide, and will cost Tata Motors about Rs 100 crore. According to Tata Motors, there is no formal safety hazard that has been associated with the old starter motor and the upgrade is being done to enhance the car’s realibility.
