ABSTRACT
The article discusses business challenges facing Tata after the acquisition of Jaguar and Land Rover. They include slashing carbon dioxide emission to meet the target of the European Union, improving the poor safety test score of Land Rover, and securing access to future pollution-reducing solutions. Tata has to be ready with its own emissions-reducing solutions before its supply agreement with Ford expires in 2013.
