Paris, Apr 13: The Moselle province in France is planning to ask Tata Motors to set up a manufacturing unit for the Nano in the region.

Moselle Development Agency Director General M David Malingrey said, "Tata Motors should take a look at the Moselle province for establishing manufacturing and logistics units for Nano cars."

Malingrey said, "By the end of this month, we are planning to contact Tata Motors in India with a proposal to look at the investment opportunities here for the Nano."

He also noted that setting up of a manufacturing base will help Tata Motors expand the Nano' market across Europe fast.

Last year, Tata Group Chief Ratan Tata had said that the company hopes to have a version for Europe by 2011 and one for the US perhaps by 2012.

Tata Nano is the world's cheapest car priced at Rs 1,00,000. It was commercially launched in India in 2009.

If the company plans to launch a version in Europe, it would have to boost the safety features of Nano and meet higher emissions standards, as well.
