Tata Nano set to drive on Bangladesh roads

Tata Motors’ low-priced Nano is set to roam the streets of Bangladesh from early next month, the local distributor said on Monday.

“We plan to import up to 2,000 cars initially but the figure will be raised with increased demand in the country,” said Abdul Matlub Ahmed, chairman of Nitol-Niloy Group.

The Nano was likely to cost around 500,000 taka in Bangladesh, Ahmed said. But the price may vary depending on the government’s decision on customs duty. Used cars from Japan are popular in Bangladesh for their high quality and reliability.
