Hey guys, did anyone notice this. That the no. on the first car in mumbai is 4149. That`s add up to no. 9. Is that a special no. How much would that have costed him.

Here in AP, people are crazy about the no. 9. in RTO bidding prices go very high. I remember a skoda owner here in vizag who paid 1.5 lac just to get the no. 9. that`s more than the value of nano itself.

Tru, Nano has got good road presence, it doesn't look small as most would think.

@ Vahan Pujari : It will be interesting to see if streamlined production + delivery (after 1 - 2 years) tilt the demand back to the Nano's original philosophy? A realistic possibility once the initial order backlog is cleared.

PS - I'm not blanking out the numberplate since pictures of the car with the numberplate have already been published.

I feel it looks OK, not good nor bad either. But looking at it I get the feeling that it has to be driven with extreme care over our roads and definitely not meant for highway at all.

Yes, GTO. My personal opinion is that, for Nano to be successful to its expected level (not 7k-8K numbers p.m. but much more than that), Tata's will have to ensure to revert back to its original positioning of a superior alternative to Two-Wheelers with highest sales coming from entry-level variant.

i agree to that, if they really need to ensure and revert back thats nano is an alternative to two wheeler owners segment which is possible with its base model and not for top end lx one which has got highest number of bookings.
Was thinking instead of nano taking over two wheelers market for its affordable price for first owners we might see nano purchased more by owners who already owns four wheelers and this might be an alternative for kids,wives to drive in nano instead oftwo wheelers rather then family owning first cars.IMO.
