The words "R.I.P. M800" do come to mind

it will be interesting to see how things move on with Maruti. with 21% more space and 45% cheaper than M800(not sure abt the bhp diff and milage diff), this just could be the lethal blow to M800.
Hopefully the only issue Tata has to take care of will be A.S.S.

A big applause for tata!

Well its still not a complete car - I would classify it as a city run-about . Seems pretty similar to the smart 4 two comcept in profile

This is really great!
It is supposed to cost less in Kolkata. So guess what me and my friend here are planning to buy it by polling in 50K each , as we share the apartment as well.
Waiting for the bookings to start.

I saw the event and I was speechless. It gave an indication of how determined Mr Tata was. The quotes of Mr Suzuki were in the repeatedly show in the background. It was awesome. Kudos to Mr Tata, the man India respects.

Super!!! Finally its out. Its been a rather long wait since we saw the first scoop pictures. Good to see it has evolved well from there. Hats of to you Ratan Tata.

The critics can take a walk now. What was that about the Flintstones car! An Ace with a roof and what not! And where is Mr. Suzuki? I would like to hear what he has to say.

Those worried about congestion and pollution, stop using your car for a few years. Let the 'deprived' have some luxuries now.
