New Delhi: Girish Wagh, head of Tata Motors Ltd’s small car project, will be part of a team formed to investigate recent fires in the ‘Nano’, the company said, declining to specify how long the investigation will take or what measures it plans to take in the interim.
Wagh’s appointment is one indication that Tata Motors is taking reports of fires in the ‘Nano’ in Mumbai and Vadodara seriously. “You cannot discount the fact that there are over 30,000 running Nano’s on the road,” said Debasis Ray, a spokesperson.
Last year, after reports of the cars catching fire due to defective combi switches, the company changed the supplier and carried out pre-emptive checks on the ‘Nano’.
Tata Motors said it would be premature to comment on possible recalls.
