with 5 people and a kerb wt of 600 kgs being pulled by a 2 cyl 35 HP mill. Add to this an AC!! I feel that this is the end of motoring as we know it. The streets will be full of underpowered slow moving vehicles. Honk Honk your head off.

its not the case, i have driven it myself. its a nice peppy car. as it is there are hell lot of cars which are driven slow in the city. the 35 hp mill has a good torque to pull it easily in the streets.

Amit, when are you planning to post the first Tata Nano test drive report?

Nice pics

I don't think the masses are going to care to TD it to see if it can haul their families in the car, just the prospect of owning a car that has so much hype going for it will make them go for it.

I expect to see lots of slow moving nano's with "L"'s on them around the city, but I wonder how seasoned drivers are going to cope with a good majority of amateur drivers on the road

Default All That You Wanted To Know About The Nano

ALL THAT YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NANO
* The Tata Nano will initially be available in three models — the Nano (base model), the CX (mid-level model) and LX (top-end model)
* The cost of the base model will not exceed Rs 1 lakh (ex-factory, Pune)
* Booking forms will be available at SBI, Westside, Croma stores and, of course, 400-odd Tata Motors dealerships
* Booking forms will be available for only 14 days
* Nano merchandise, including Nano phones and watches, will be marketed through various outlets
* To begin with, only the petrol engine version will be available. The 624-cc two-cylinder petrol engine with a single balancer shaft (to avoid excessive vibrations) will have four valves. It will develop 35 bhp at 5,500 rpm and 4.8 kgm of torque at 3,000 rpm
* The Nano should crack 60 kph in eight seconds and will have a top speed of 105 kph
* The Nano will be available in BS II and BS III variants
* The Nano will weigh 600 kg without load
* The Nano will have only one spare tyre and it can be used to repair only the front tyres, since the rear tyre is of a different size. However, the car can be driven slowly even after a puncture (and should be repaired as soon as possible)
* The Nano will have four forward gears and one reverse gear
* The Nano will have a 15-litre fuel tank. With an expected mileage of slightly over 20 kpl, a full-tank will take you over 300 km
* Only the driver’s seat will be adjustable in the base model
* The Nano CX model will have air conditioning with a heater
* The LX model will have power windows, central locking and fog lamps
* The Nano will come with a warranty of 18 months or 24,000 km

source 2-wheeler, auto-rickshaws may feel the Nano impact

Yes they look a bit uncomfortable in the back seat. Guess 4 people will be fine in Nano comfort wise.
Also will it be able to pull 5 people easily with only 600 cc along AC is a Q which can be answered only through TD.

Oho! What about the 683kg M800 pulled by a 37.5HP mill? Are you fine with that?

Or what about a 895kg premier pulled by a 46HP mill? Or 1158kg Amby pulled by an engine as low as 40HP (or 50 for some)

For those taking loans for the car this is interesting news
SBI may levy 14% interest on Nano loans

Tata Motors is putting the final touches to a finance scheme for the Nano car through a tie-up with the State Bank of India, India's largest bank, under which the bank will finance 70 per cent of the price of the car at an interest rate of 14 to 14.75 per cent for a tenure of up to five years.

What will the models (CX and LX) cost? Also, any info available about warranty?

Hope TATA get a record no of advance bookings, because company's debt is reaching 1 lac crores.
