Hyundai to take on Tata Nano in India

Hyundai is planning to take on Tata Motor’s recently unveiled $2,500 Nano minicar. According to Hyundai’s Advanced Technology Center head, Cho Won-suk, it only makes sense for Hyundai, who is the second largest auto maker in India, to offer a competitor to the Tata Nano.

Cho Won-suk says that the car will be on the market by 2011 and will be produced in India. He said that Hyundai is also planning to offer more fuel-efficient cars and SUVs by 2009. Fuel-cell and hybrids are planned for 2020.

Maruti Suzuki holds the number one spot as the largest auto maker in India, followed by Hyundai with Tata coming in at third.
