Tata1_interna Renault-Nissan has given the green light to the future Nano competitor due to be launched by 2011.

The news doesn't come as a surprise as Petrol-Head regularly covered the future Nano competitors the last months. Until now, the carmaker which teams up with Bajaj Auto, was studying the feasibility to build a Nano competitor. As predicted, the future model will be sold for £1,250.

Renault-Nissan and the Indian motorcycle manufacturer will set up a new joint venture which will be 50% owned by Bajaj Auto, 25% by Renault and 25% by Nissan.

Targeting the growing Indian new vehicle market, the ultra low cost model will be made at an all-new plant to be constructed in Chakan in India with a an initial planned capacity of 400,000 units per year.
