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.
its not as uncomfortable as M800. and yes it pushes 5 people easily with its rear engine comfortably. see the interior pics.

It gives an average already of 23kmpl. Why would someone want to put a LPG in it (where is the space anyway).

Here are some pictures of the dispatch of the first Nano going to the showroom. Was sent to me by a friend working for Tata Motors.
The baby is looking quite good!

This debt is of entire group (TML, TISCO, TCS, TATA POWER, etc.,) not just Tata Motors.

I belive there is going to be an advance payment for the bokking of the car? Rs900 i think it was and this will be refunded to you if your application gets rejected. First time ever that a company is charging its customers for booking a vehicle.

Wish you all the best Nano. Your success depends on the reliability.

The car looks cool and spacious, at its price. I guess it would be better to wait for 5-6 months before buying this, after the design/manufacturing problems (I am sure there will be some invariaby) are taken care of.

Not anymore cheaper than the maruti 800. The fornt seats give a good look, nicely designed. The luxury model looks way better than the 800. So, the reliability is only deciding factor.


If it comes in a diesel then there is no match for the Nano. Sure sucess
