-Contribution Margin

I couldn't find any information about the fixed costs (manufacturing, export...) anywhere other than a similar project that I found here (tailored towards Malaysia):

The selling price could be about $4,350, which means that each car sold would net $1,930. This is inclusive of standard accessories, but does not include registation, licensing, and sales tax which would all be the responsibility of the purchaser.

Solution Summary

Explains how the Tata Nano car can be brought to the US, including financial data.
