Company background

Tata Motors is a core company of Tata group, one of India's three largest conglomerates. It occupies the leading position in the Indian commercial vehicle market and has also ranked among the top five passenger car brands in the country. With a strong emphasis on exports, the company runs auto manufacturing and assembly plants in South Africa and the U.K. and currently operates in more than 170 countries.
Founded in 1945 as a manufacturer of commercial vehicles, Tata Motors initially focused on production of trucks and buses for the domestic market. Tata Motors' transformation into a passenger car manufacturer started in the latter half of the 1990s. Its Indica compact car, released in 1998, proved to be a big hit and helped the company solidify its status as a passenger-car maker. In 2009, the company made a global splash when it unveiled its ultralow-cost Nano at a price of 100,000 rupees (around $2,000 at the time).
Tata Motors is known for its highly active mergers-and-acquisitions strategy. The Indian company acquired South Korean automaker Daewoo's truck manufacturing unit in 2004, and it bought the U.K. luxury car brand Jaguar Land Rover in 2008. These deals set the stage for Tata Motors' accelerated global expansion.
The company's largest shareholder is Tata Sons, the holding company of Tata group. The Indian automaker is under the leadership of Tata group Chairman Cyrus Mistry. It is listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 2004.
