Tata Motor's vehicle supply to failed British automaker MG Rover was not a big part of its main business, said company executives.
Until February, MG Rover imported versions of Tata's Indica hatchback from India and sold them in Europe as the CityRover small-segment car.
The British carmaker's collapse in April has not affected Tata's plans to strengthen its European presence, said Venkataramani Sumantran, executive director of Tata's passenger car business unit.
Sumantran said the Tata link to MG Rover was a product-supply agreement, not a joint venture, although supplying CityRovers to the British carmaker probably helped raise Tata's profile in Europe.
Tata supplied 10,000 Indica units to MG Rover between late 2003 and February 2005.
Last year MG Rover sold 6,150 CityRovers, according to JATO Dynamics.
