Default RENAULT YENI 1.30 laks CAR for India ! (Nano's Rival !) EDIT: As of now, hearsay/hoax

I am not sure if they repeated the news throughout the day. The car is to be named something like 'Lano' or 'Leno' priced in the 1.3 lak. The photos that were shown on the channel were shockingly attractive and very well designed much better than all our 4-5 lak segment cars in India. I spent lot of time googling on net and checking few other news channels but could not find any trace of such a news. If anyone happend to see it, please share it here.

If automobile brands are going to compete each other in bringing out the cheapest but likeable cars as a trend, its a boon for the regular users. Majority will drive cars on roads. Tata Nano has a global competitor already (Mitsubishi) apart from Bajaj's new car !!
Although nobody commented about the above post done on the Tata's car Nano thread, I found it appropriate to put the topic on a new thread with available photos and corrections from the above with more details. Above post was made on 17th Jan 2008 as a result of a flash news on timesnow news channel as mentioned. Corrections are below with more details on the car.

This Car is launching in India only for Rs 1, 30,000 ( Usd 2300 / Dhs 12,000 ) Car name is: RENAULT YENI will be launching in India in collaboration with Mahindra. This is the another budget car to compete TATA and FIAT500!! and now ofcourse Bajaj's new one as well.

Photos following soon !!

There is NO WAY in the world that you're going to get the car depicted in the pictures for 1.3L! 13L, maybe yes, you'll get it but 1.3, never!

Do you know what is the price of FIAT500 in India? Please first check the price and then make this statement.

Each seat would cost 1.3 L or each tyre with the mag or the steering wheel.

Impossible. That steering wheel and dashboard alone will cost more than 1.3 lakhs. However if you're willing to get me one I'll pay 1.3 lakhs.
