Great scoop mate!

Thanks for sharing!

The car looks mighty cute. The face and the interiors seemed to be very well thought out! Kudo's to Tata!

In photo number 3, the front shot of the yellow car, did you guys notice a kind of air intake scoop near the rear wheel? Any idea what it is supposed to do? Or is it just a fashion statement?

With all those wiring and stuffs, I doubt if he would have got a good look.

But, as mentioned, it was great of the TATA employee's to be so accomodating for these photos.

One of them overtook me at 110Km/hr. You can see one of them actually overtaking two trucks!

Like it or not, the NANO is going to change the face of motoring. Look at someone like me, I'm not able to afford a new car. I keep picking up second hand cars every now and then, but with the NANO I can get my first new car.

A new car is so much more. If you keep it well maintained from day one you won't have worries later. I've spent my whole life buying second hand cars and rectifying errors that others have committed

Well, I am sorry, but I was not able to notice anything else but the Nano. That's why thought this way.

The car is rear engines right ? And the rear hatch is fixed, so wont the access to engine be difficult ?
Can anyone explain this ?

Nice pics , the car seems good.
And 110kmph is quite good for a 650cc engine

Well mods, why have you not watermarked the pics yet? Most likely these pics must alraedy have been stolen by auto mags!

Nice find. The car looks good it may be overtaking trucks (which is expected) but still it would not do to have it on an highway though am sure we would be seeing a lot of them being driven on highways. How ? remains to be seen.

I do not think tata has any plan for this, if we get AC and power window etc that will be enough. Don't expect too much from people's Car.

Good Scoop Ram!

The center console is placed higher than in the Vista and the central air-con vents are higher too.

Nice pics, byzanram.
Call this car anything you want - ugly, rickshaw, whatever, I'd still rather see a family of 4 in is rather than on a Bajaj Chetak.
Considering inflation is at an all time high and certain people are doing their bit to sabotage the project, one really can't expect any more at at Rs. 1 Lakh. Kudos to Tata Motors for making this car a reality.
