That thing looks good They should already have this in place of the existing auto ricks! But who would buy this against a car?!

I wonder what prevented TVS from actually launching this. High cost?

Looks good to me, if it is under 2 lacs, I'm sure it will sell well.

this modern day auto looks real neat. am looking forward to plenty of auto rides if this comes into the market. if priced well there would be plenty of takers and tough competition to bajaj.
maybe i can start an auto business, any financers on the forum

May be old news, but very interesting nevertheless. Thanks for sharing Gopz.

Add a 4th wheel, bigger wheels, doors and a bigger engine...voila!! TVS' One-lac car is here.
