Tata Motors does a one-up on Chinese auto manufacturers by setting up a plant in Kenya
Indian auto industry might be reeling under bad sales. But that hasn't stopped the auto manufacturers from planning big developments in their other markets. Mahindra has already made noise about its exports and now Tata Motors is taking the next big step in Africa by setting up an assembly unit in Kenya.
Tata Africa is already one of the biggest subsidiaries for Tata Motors. Infact, the enterprise has been in the forefront of the Indo-China automobile war for supremacy of the growing African market. Chery automobiles and Beiqi Foton Motors from China are also heavily competing for local assembly plants.
Tata Africa confirmed the Kenya move. Apparently, Tanzania was also in the running but Kenya was chosen for better infrastructure.
