Tata to launch electric car by September

Tata Motors will have an electric car in the market by September this year. “We will have an electric car in the market in September,” Tata was quoted as saying by Cornell University on its micro-blogging feed on Twitter. Tata is also a Cornell trustee.

Foreign media also reported quoting Tata at the forum that Tata Nano, dubbed as the world’s cheapest car, is expected to be available in the US in the next two years. The much-awaited Nano was commercially launched in March in India and is expected to hit the roads soon.

According to the university website, the Tata Education and Development Trust committed USD 50 million to Cornell in October 2008 to establish the Tata Scholarship Fund for Students from India and the Tata-Cornell Initiative in Agriculture and Nutrition, intended to improve the lives and livelihoods of India’s rural poor.
