Due to the current pandemic, our economy has taken a huge toll in terms of financial losses. At this period of time, many Indians have considered swapping goods made by foreign companies to the products that are made by Indian companies. This change will help in regaining the economy. Therefore in terms of cars, we look at the companies and the products that are manufactured 100% in our country. We give a segment-wise breakdown of the made in India products.
In the hatchback segment, the Tata Tiago comes into the picture. Being a Tata car, all of the parts are manufactured locally by the company.
