So what makes RaceMo a kit car?
The RaceMo is built on the new patented MOFlex Multi-Material Sandwich (MMS) platform. This system makes it easy to assemble the car from fewer larger modules rather a small number of modules. This will allow the carmaker to ship the components to its dealers or even to the customers, where they can assemble it all by themselves.
Guenter Butschek, CEO and Managing Director, Tata Motors, while speaking to AutocarIndia has also hinted at the possible workshop like setup for the upcoming RaceMo, which means that Tata's sports car will not be rolled out of manufacturing facilities. While it is still not clear whether the RaceMo will be shipped to the dealers as kit to assemble or to the customers directly, the publication quoting Guenter Butschek says that the dealers who are not ready to handle the extra work of kitting up the model will not get this car to sell.
