Tata Motors has also signed up an industry-institute partnership agreement with the prestigious National Institute of Design (NID), India which will mutually benefit both of the parties. Tata Nano has sent a Tata Nano car for design students to study and provide their suggestions, improvements in it to make Nano an even better designed car.
Prof Pradyumna Vyas, Director, NID was quoted as saying that the world-class design institute had approached Tata Motors in this regard as Ahmedabad has emerged as an automobile hub with many global and national companies setting up shop in Gujarat. NID has a world-class academic course at the post-graduate level and latest facilities in transportation and automobile designing. Other disciplines, like textile design, product design and lifestyle accessories, may also provide inputs in Nano’s design.
It will give an opportunity to innovative designers to make Nano a superior car and will give Tata Motors valuable improvement ideas to incorporate in the future versions of Tata Nano to make it even more attractive and useful as a car.
