There have been concerns over the car's safety after several of them caught fire in the last year. Last month the company announced it would contact the 70,000 Nano owners to offer them the option of installing "additional safety protection in the exhaust system and the electrical system."

Indian business daily newspaper The Economic Times reported last month that at least seven such incidents had been reported.

Sales of the Nano, launched by Tata Motors to much fanfare in March 2009 as the world's cheapest car, dropped to just 509 in November, an 85 percent reduction from a year earlier despite a surging Indian auto market.
