Tata Motors

Tata Motors which was previously known as Tata Engineering and Locomotive Co. is the youngest passenger car company in the world. It was established in the year 1945.
Initially, they manufactured trains. But now we can say that Tata motor is solely responsible for showcasing India's automotive industry to the rest of the world by designing and developing its own indigenous cars and thus placing India on the world automobile map. Tata Motors much like its parent company (Tata Group) has far fetched vision and always thrives for excellence. It was established with a vision of becoming a global car manufacturer from India. And today, it has indeed achieved the feat of becoming a significant global player in the automobile industry.
The company had earned revenue of Rs 24,000 crores for the financial year of 2005-06. Hence, making its' presence felt on the Indian roads on a regular basis. Since, 1954 (when the first Tata vehicle was launched) till today, over 3.5 million Tata vehicles ply on the Indian roads. In the year 2004, it became the first Indian Engineering Company to be listed in the New York Stock Exchange.

International Market


Today, Tata is a global player having markets in Europe, Africa, South Asia, South East Asia, Middle East and Australia. This leap in the global market started from 1961. Once, the export division was established. In the early 90's they entered the passenger vehicle segment by launching the Tata sierra, which is India's first sports vehicle and the Tata Estate. However, the biggest achievement came later in 1998, when Tata developed the first indigenously developed small car of India called the Tata Indica. And then Tata Indigo was launched in 2002. The name "Indica" came from the words "India's Car". Tata Cars became the name to reckon with since then. And very soon Tata Indica became the most popular car in this segment even in global market. Then, later in 2005 they launched India's first indigenously developed Mini- Truck called the Tata Ace.

Recently, in order to fulfill its global dream, Tata Motors has acquired the Daewoo Commercial Vehicles Company, Korea's second largest truck manufacturer, in the year 2004. In 2005, they acquired 21% stake in Hispano Carrocera, a Spanish bus and coach manufacturer. They have manufacturing plants in Jamshedpur, Pune and Lucknow. They also have assembly operations in Malaysia, Kenya, Bangladesh, Spain, Ukraine, Russia and Senegal. Today Tata is a household name. Tata cars are seen running on the roads
