It sure looks bigger than what I expected. In the video you can see 3 people fitting on the back seat. The car makes a lot of sense for city driving and specially for places like mumbai where people fight for parking space.

Though I have a Swift Vdi I might buy the Nano only thing is I hate the lottery system and if thats the case I might wait.

Oh in the Video the rear looks like its an Indica V2. Good luck to Tata Nano.

Mostly, it is a soft launch. At the most, they might have a few dozen cars to be given to politicians, celebs, etc...

The most interesting aspect of this launch will be the pricing, since we have already seen the car.

Nothing beats cheap publicity. A shame the peoples car is being handed out to people who can afford much more when the car was intended for people with limited funds who wanted to become car owners.

Two finger salute to the Mamta gang as well from the Tatas. They will not be held to ransom by petty politicians.
