Diesel & Motor Engineering PLC (DIMO), the only authorized distributor of Tata vehicles in Sri Lanka, selected the most fuel-efficient Tata Nano car at the “Tata Nano Challenge Mileage Rally 2016” held recently.  
The Tata Nano Challenge Mileage Rally 2016 was flagged off from Colombo with the objective of raising customer awareness and highlighting the Tata Nano as one of the most fuel efficient passenger cars in Sri Lanka. 
Nearly one hundred Tata Nano owners from across the island took part in the rally which started off from the DIMO Head Office and covered close to 100km through the towns of Kiribathgoda, Siyambalape, Gampaha, Udugampola and Divulapitiya, before arriving at the finish line in Negombo. Several hundred applications were received for the rally, from which close to 100 Tata Nano cars were carefully selected, based on pre-determined criteria and were given free inspections to ensure their readiness for the rally. 
During the rally, the participants were provided with a time chart, route map and riding tips, which had to be followed to reach the final destination. ‘Top-up to top-up’ method was used to calculate the fuel efficiency, a method which ensured accurate measurement of the fuel consumed by each vehicle and the mileage achieved. 
Ranika Sulakshani from Nugegoda was the overall winner as she recorded an impressive 36.88km/l in her Nano, and won an all-expenses paid tour to India with a visit to the Tata Motors plant for her outstanding driving efforts. R. A. Upali Kithsiri from Colombo 12 who recorded 36.73 km/l was placed second and won a 2-night stay at a 5-star hotel while T.B.G. Soysa from Angoda, recorded 33.9 km/l bagged third place and was rewarded with a dinner for 4 at a 5-star hotel. Prizes were also given out for the Tata Nano with the “Highest Mileage”, “Best Modified/Accessorized car”, “Best Maintained car” and “Highest Number of Services done at DIMO”. All drivers received consolation prizes and certificates of participation. 
The award ceremony to hand over prizes to the winners was held at Jetwing Blue and was attended by several representatives of DIMO and Tata Motors including Ranjith Pandithage (Chairman & Managing Director, DIMO), Vijitha Bandara (Director, DIMO), Mahesh Karunaratne (General Manager, Tata Vehicle Service Division, DIMO), Navin Seneviratne (General Manager – Tata Vehicle Parts Division) and Anura Wijesinghe (DGM, Tata Passenger Cars, DIMO) together with Sujan Roy (Head of Marketing Services (International Business- Passenger Cars) & Regional Head (South Asia), Randhir Choudhary (Area Customer Support Manager - Passenger Vehicles (International Business) and Pranaw Kumar (Area Manager - Passenger Vehicles (International Business) from Tata Motors. 
Ranjith Pandithage- Chairman & Managing Director of DIMO said, “We congratulate the winners and are delighted by the great participation in the rally. We remain committed to providing the best customer value through fuel-efficient cars and Tata Nano has consistently offered high fuel efficiency with ample space for the whole family. DIMO’s excellent after sales service and our island-wide presence allows us to take care of Tata customers and their vehicles 24 hours a day, especially with two dedicated workshop facilities at Ratmalana and Colombo 14.” 
Sujan Roy - Head of Marketing Services (International Business - Passenger Cars) & Regional Head (South Asia) Tata Motors Limited said, “The enthusiastic response to the rally proves the popularity of the car and the great mileage results amply demonstrate the high fuel efficiency of the car. We, at Tata Motors, are continuously looking at ways to enhance our product offerings for our valued customers.”
