Wow! That's a brilliant effort. All thanks to you and your better half. Keep it up guys!

It's indeed a very cute looking car. I like the front as well as the rear. Love to have one at home.
Tata deserves all praises to make this dream car into a reality. We were all doubtful about it even after it's debut at the Auto Expo.
OFF TOPIC:
Those who complain about this car being a traffic nuisance are very selfish in my opinion. If we can buy/have a car, why not let my neighbour have one too? If not for this dream car, many will spend their whole life lugging around their family of 5 in a 100cc 2wheeler.
Now, this has been argued many times on different threads. Ain't it?

@AAgoswamy. It's very clear from the pictures that they were clicked from the passenger side of the car.

with you @ byzanram, you are wearing a white T and a gold kada in your left hand, with one ring each in both hands and you also wear a square shaped wrist watch with black dial in your right hand, but the person talking the pic (i,e your dear wife) was wearing a Grey T and wears a golden chain type strap watch with white dial..

correct me if iam wrong on this...just giving my findings from the pictures posted by you, that you were not driving and clicking pictures at the same time..

Looks good. Wish some cars which are 7 or 8 times expensive looked as good as this!

Unlike what the media says Nano has set the pulses of automotive enthusiasts across price ladders. I know one person who wants to buy it. His other two cars are around 70 lakhs each!

Wow!! Whatta scoop!!! Thanks for the pics Ram.

Looks like we may have a launch in Oct after all - though volumes may not be coming out until the alternative plant chugs out more of these li'l machines. Tata will definitely have a second round of "wow" and "kudos" once these are retailed!

Nice observation Ruff Ryder!

The car looks better from the front. I think would look much better in Black or Red color.

Excellent capture. The NANO looks cute on indian roads. And the yellow one, is awesome. Tata said it will be launched as planned in October. So we are almost nearing the launch. Cheers

Alright, the car looks good. They will look like butterflies on the road

This will make for a nice office commute car. I wish TATA would come up with a hybrid version of this thing, then it will rock!!

did anyone notice how the thing wasn't camouflaged like the indica vista test mules?
and to add that the folks at the wheel were downright sociable, allowing these pics and even the interiors.
Most of the others who try to take pictures of cars which are being tested end up getting forced off the road by the agressive test drivers who dont want any pics taken, and get abused by them if any pics do get taken.
Kudos to the openness !
PS: do i smell cheap viral advertising

Excellent pics, Byzanram. Thanks for sharing them.
The Nano certainly makes you feel like you want to own one, and my wife has taken a particular liking to it. You never know, this may find its way as a member of my family.

Fantastic pics. Appriciate the effort taken to take these and share them with us.
The Nano does look cute!

How good were the interiors (seats, material, space, etc) ?

Oh no... Looks like TATA can't get the Indica's design out of their heads! The back of NANO looks like Indica, but little smaller. C'mon TATA, produce some good looking car..! Like the Smart...!
