INCIDENT AND ACCIDENT
There were several incidents of the vehicle catching fire too.
A lot of fiber and plastic was used instead of steel to keep the weight of the car low.
MARKETING TEAM - POSITIVE REBUTTAL
all competitor spread negative activity about Tata Nano
Change in Product
TATA FIRST DELAYED THE NANO LAUNCH 22 MONTHS
Tata Motors announced in 2006 that the Nano would be
manufactured in Singur, West Bengal. Local farmers soon began
protesting the forced acquisition of their land the new factory
entailed. Tata first delayed the Nano launch and later decided to
build the car in a different state, Gujarat, instead.
The failure of Tata Nano present with a great lesson for all the marketers the car
was positioned as a symbol of social liberty and equality. It was positioned as
dream car of common man of India. It was targeting the laymen who want to have
a car and it got successful to some extent but only till a functional level. The Nano
made sense in terms of a social mission, on a purely functional level. Good quality
engineering focused on the task of making something reliable and safe as cheap as
possible. Sell it to people with not much money. But it has been criticized all
around as the one to the greatest positioning blunder as even the most cost effective
producers do not label their products as cheap. Here the cheap has a great social
connotation and the social tag because nobody aspires to buy the cheapest thing on
the market, and driving around in a car is as big a statement as you get to make.
Human psychology is that the motivation behind buying isn't to have a car, or a
shampoo, or whatever the product is. If a product is positioned as poor‘s product
then poor people will definitely avoid it because they don‘t want to be viewed as
poor yet. The marketer just need to place their product right in the minds of
customer and the brands like Armani, Raymond‘s, Toyota and even other brands of
Tata are examples of that. So positioning remains the main mantra behind the
success of any product.
