The car will be exported to several left-hand drive markets like Africa and South-East Asia.
Tata Motors is currently exporting Nano to just a handful of markets including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal due to unavailability of a left-hand drive version. However, earlier during the year, Tata Motors had announced that the company is readying a left-hand drive version of the Nano to venture into other export markets like Africa and South East-Asia.
Now though it appears to be that the company is nearing completion of the LHD version of the Nano as one of the test mules has been spied in Pune by the folks over at Motorbash. The interior of the LHD Nano remains largely unchanged from the regular one apart from the steering wheel and the control stalks, which are now placed on the left side of the dashboard.
The left-hand drive Nano will open up a number of additional opportunities for Tata Motors to export the car overseas. It will also help the carmaker to exploit the full capacity of its production facility in Sanand, Gujarat. Despite an annual capacity of 250,000 units, the plant is currently rolling out just about 10,000 units of the Nano per month due to lack of demand.
