Jagdish Khattar, former managing director Maruti Suzuki,
"The car is good to look at. There is a space in the market between two-wheelers and the 800 (Maruti's small car). It will be a success if they deliver what they promised. And I see no reason why they can't."
Ramesh Suri, Chairman Subros,
"The best thing is that they have kept the price at levels promised at concept stage. It is good to look at. I can't say about the driving experience as I have not taken a trial."
Shinzo Nakanishi, Managing Director of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd,
"We cannot make a cheaper car. We don't know how to make a Rs 1 lakh car unless we sacrifice something. We won't go below the 800 in our product line-up, but this car may impact some of our Maruti 800 sales"
Anand Mahindra, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd,
"I think it's a moment of history and I'm delighted an Indian company is leading the way."
Venu Srinivasan, Chairman & Managing Director, TVS Motor Co,
"It is fantastic, outstanding engineering. It helps redefine the sector in the country. It has established new grounds."
P Sam, Group Head, Marketing & Sales, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt Ltd,
"The Rs 1 lakh rupee car is not going to impact our potential customers. Our customers would buy our products for the sheer joy of riding."
Onkar Kanwar, Apollo Tyres Ltd,
"I congratulate Tata. He has delivered what he promised."
Ashok Singh, Delhi Police Constable,
"It is a dream come true. I look forward to buying that car. My wife will be really happy."
G Colquhoun, Reader in Manufacturing Systems, School of Engineering, Liverpool,
"This is an important step for Asian markets. I look forward to this car being introduced in European markets."
