Sister company Tata TACO worked on parts like interior injection mouldings, dashboard aggregates and door handles. It also entered into a JV with Ficosia International of Spain to supply cables and mirrors for the car that are being produced at the company's Hinjewadi, Pune facility. Tata TACO will supply over 20 per cent of all the parts being built for the Nano.
A surprise entrant into the proceedings turned out to be Kinetic Engineering. The company best known for its two-wheeler business became party to the supplier base just months after the car was showcased to the world. It will supply the transmission gears for the car, a crucial component in the drivetrain.
