Honeywell could well be the company that's suplying the turbos. They set up a plant in Pune with initial capacity of about 1.25 lac unit p.a. But again, i don't think they are going to be supplying for the small car. They sure will be supplying to other models of Tata.

Japan has had a history of producing 550 CC cars (our own Maruti 800 was sold in Japan with a 550 CC engine) which were entitled to tax benefits. So, a 700 CC car mass-manufactured in India utilising existing components and parts and costing Rs. 1 lac (exclusive of taxes and duties) does seem plausible. After all, according to a statement made by Mr Jagdish Khattar some 2-3 years ago, it costs Maruti only Rs. 1.25 lacs to produce the Maruti 800, the rest of the car's price comprising of taxes, dealer margins, etc.
Incidentally, the current installed capacity for production of Ace (after the recent ramp up) is 60,000 units annually, up from the original 30,000.

Maruti will definitely smell competition and jump in the fray.
