I hope our automobile manufacturers give us something better than this for Rs. 1 Lac. Imagine the chaos that would reign if this vehicle was released in Mumbai. Autorickshaws, unruly scooterists, BEST buses, taxis and drunkards.... ooh! Anyway, why do we need a Rs. 1 Lac car? Get a used M800!

1 lac for this is way toooo much. Mr. HAbib is charging too much for a 4 wheel moped
I wouldn't touch this thing with a barge pole for 10 bucks forget a hundred thousand bucks to buy it.
I'd rather walk!

Addy, You have hit the nail right on the head. Research has consistently shown that most 1 lac car buyers would rather buy a used 800 ( a proper car) rather than a bare basic golf cart with doors.

Aditya....i feel that a used M800 will do much better for a 1 lac car than this car.

Most definitely!
The M800 may be old and outdated, but, as GTO said, it's a proper car with a proper doors, proper seats, proper wheels, A/C, etc. Trust me, after all these years, it's still among the best city cars that you can buy in India - decent performance, safety and easy on the pocket too.

All those interested in 1Lakh car project please grab copy of this months Top Gear.
Where there is article called Six Serious ideas for the one-lakh car
which are entries by for Top Gear Design Awards.
And those are very well thought of details designes which doesn't look like attaching two cycles & fitting IC engine between.

BTW isn't Pakistani 1 rupee has less value than 1 Indian Rupee. So this must be sub 1lakh car for us

PS: It does not look to have a reverse gear either
