Tata Nano (Mar 2010) fire
New Delhi, Aug 27: Accounting for the third such incident in 2010 alone, yet another Tata Nano went up in flames in south Delhi on Friday, Aug 27.

Quoting eyewitnesses, India Today reported that the car standing in front of MCD office at Aurobindo Marg in Green Park went up in flames soon after the driver reported a spark from the rear side of the car as he tried to switch on the ignition.

The fire completely destroyed the car as fire tenders took too long to reach the spot. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident.

This comes despite Tata Motors' repeated assurances that the world's cheapest car was safe.

The first case of a Nano catching fire was reported in Mar 2010 while on its trip from the showroom to the customer's home. Read: Brand new Tata Nano goes up in flames

Even before these cases, there were three other such cases of fires recorded.

In the wake of these fires, the auto giant had carried out an investigation.
