Tata Nano is here- The People's car

Finally after 4 years, Ratan Tata delivered on his promise of bringing out the car, also known as One lakh ($2500)....The People's Car...

One lakh rupees for a car...wow...when a decent bike in India costs around 45-50k....The idea of the car came from the Indian common man who drives his entire family of 4 on his two wheeler..google for such images n u ll find plenty....

The car looks good..can easily accomodate 4 people...comes in 2 versions - standard n deluxe..read abt it here..

Tata Nano - Press Release

the car's made of re-engineered plastics...and uses adhesives instead of welding...it boasts of mileage of 20kms per litre in the city and 26 on the highways ( in India)

well i m sure this car is going to have a global impact...and also register Tata's as a strong auto manufacterer globally..and very soon with the acquisition of Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford..u ll see world class luxury cars from the stable of Tata's...

Here are some pics of the Tata Nano..The People's car...



so people let me know what u feel about the people's car....

P.S- I am off to another country for a vacation for a few days..but will keep checking my blog n also updating it incase i get the time...cheers!!

They featured this little gem on Good Morning America. It's soooo cutesie!! But I'm not a heat and melting type girl... I'd have issues with no air conditioning.

Well....Tata actually provided India with a breakthrough! but to come to think of it the one lakh car which is oh-so affordable....will give rise to...traffic chaos, parkin problems...

Guess we need another revo..regarding the parkin systems n indian roads....not to forget Indian mentality, which is never ready to shell out money in parkin lots!!!

maverick said...

@sinner...very true..there are pros n cons..lets see how the public..the govt..the industry comes up with a means to tackle the problems of parking...chaos..traffic mgmt n all..its a social issue that we all need to look at :)
