Huh! That much of debate over something that no one has yet seen? Hmmm... Well, the 1st thing that strikes you with that image is that something with that much attitude will never sell for just 1 lakh... I mean, forget everything else. Just look at those wheels? What size are they? 15 inchers? On a Rs.1 lakh car? Or those bulbous integrated arches that seamlessly integrate with that Neo-millenia look front?I guess other costlier Tata cars will commit suicide if that car makes it as a 1 lakh car.

Stop dreaming guys

Yes the 550 twin was tested and found to be inadequate for 4 people.

Now they are hooking up with FIAT for an 850 twin.

Can you say Cinquecento !!!

Quoting from the link given in the previous page..

Tata said the car would have continuously variable transmission (CVT) automatic gearbox technology, which would make it easier to drive.
thats interesting, isnt it?

I am new here and this is my first post.

Guys... Type in 'Toyota Endo' in google images and search it. This really is sad... This is not Tata's one-lakh car.
