Tata Motors' 1-lakh car will be launched in manual and automatic (continuous variable transmission) versions

According to industry sources, work on the new small car assembly line at Tata Motors’ Ace plant at Uttarakhand, which involves a financial outlay of Rs 400 crore, commenced a couple of months ago. The line will have an installed capacity to manufacture 60,000 cars annually, and is expected to be ready for trial production by early April.

The remaining components will be sourced from Pune, sources say, adding that the initial plan is to produce 30,000 cars.

However, those close to its development here reveal that it has a rear engine, weighs around 600 kg and is powered by a 32-HP engine.
