Now that is one awesome looking car. I am talking about the Nano in yellow. Suddenly the desi Nano looks seriously cheap.

I guess this change is for enabling the car to use alloys. With 3 nuts, it won't be able to accept aftermarket alloys.

Amazing. We get the "starved - underfed - weird looking - random - funny" pokemon type thing in yellow, and those guys get the pokemon with body armour and cool looking eyes and a better colour? Wonder what our country has come to, that our own manufacturer is degrading us like this. Shame if that car still sells by the minute over here.

Prima looks to have taken major inspiration from lexus IS. so no wonder it looks cool. lets hope we get something close to the concept on the roads. Tata does need a sedan that "looks" cool.

I wonder why not the extended version for us. This is wrong attitude for us from Tata. We do deserve
a longer wheelbase and a good looking car. Yes, the cost concern, I am aware of, but then as a higher version
may be this car can be sold. And why did Tata first not show this car to us in India ?

It looks much better than the indian version and tata should discontinue that yellow color as it makes the car look ral bad.
I hope tata is again becomes a pioneer by offering ABS and Airbags atleast as an option to us in India.

wow! nano europa looks awesome! This version should also be launched in india, along with the basic 1-lakh version.

even if priced at 2-ish lakhs, i think it would sell very well.

Yeah and we will expect the same to retail for maybe 2 lakhs here. This is a market that wants everything yet wants to pay close to nothing.

People will say "1 lakh for the Nano + 15k for the ABS + 10k for the Airbags + 10k for Alloys = 1.5 lakhs max, I dont find value in the Europa at 2 lakhs" and the one that sells will still be the 1 lakh version.

The stated aim of the Nano here is to be the 'One Lakh Car'. It hasnt even rolled off the production lines yet - lets see what the real thing looks like, this is just eye candy for the Euro market which I doubt will see daylight anytime in the near future.

Oh my! The Nano Europa just looks so beautiful!
Those tail lamps are definitely an improvement over the Indica derived lamps on the Indian version. Probably something on the agenda for the facelift version.

Nano looks really cute, especially the alloys.

I wish we could also get the Automatic version.

If Nano AT will be launch here, it will be a boon to all the housewives in India.


Any way, yes we do deserve the extended wheelbase / airbags / ABS. TATA should offer them.

Man.. the europeans surely are lucky!
I wish, Tata give this package (with all the features mentioned in the press release) atleast at an option. A nano with all these at 2.5-3 lakhs is not a bad option in front an Alto lxi at all!!
