Mr. Tara should have named it Mamata ..... would have gotten him more mileage.

The pics, if it to be believed to be of the car, makes one feel like doing bungee jumping with Chinese noodles ......

Post World Cheapest car is not the Nano.

The Tata Nano is no longer the world's cheapest car! Jostling along with Tata Nano, this July, will be Tara Tiny and Tara Titu. These are zero emission, electric cars and cost only Rs 99,000! And they come from the Tara International stable.

Read on:
rediff.com: Tara Tiny @ Rs 99K is the world's cheapest car!

Specifications of Tara Tiny are as follows:
No of seats: 4
Net weight: 850 kg
Wheel base: 2150 mm
Maximum speed: 50 km/hour
Maximum grade ability: 15%
Motor power: 3 kw
Battery voltage: 6V*10
Recharge duration: 8 hours
Driving charge: 120 km
Ground clearance: 150/mm
Running cost: 40 p/km
Battery capacity: 200/Ah

Looks quite heavy for that size. I thought an electric car could be lighter.

Rs. 99,000 including battery..??!!
wow... Looks good. but the question is when it will be available in India. And what is the battery life, because Battery is the costliest item in this car.

Never heard the company name before. Being a small company how they started exporting the cars from India to US and China? without introducing in India?
