Is it because its a 'xhibition ' piece ? even then tata could have taken steps to avoid this ?

Any information ?
Thats TATA's old technology, look at old IndiCabs they have same wheel positioning he he he. Although TATA is doing really great, coming up with lot of changes and bringing lot more to the customer, however i still doubt the TATA's QC department.

The back wheel is tilted purposely not a QC fault. you would find in some super car modified with the back wheel tilted for more balance. I think the famous dubai Accord which was modified in dubai has tilted back wheel.

Shinzo Nakanishi, managing director and chief executive officer of Maruti Suzuki India, poses with the newly launched Maruti Suzuki's "Eeco" car at Auto Expo in New Delhi January 7, 2010. Maruti, 54.2% owned by Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp, will sell the seven-seater version of Eeco at Rs 275,000 ($6,000), the company said at the Delhi auto show, where it also showcased an electric version of the vehicle.

This Auto Expo has been disappointing IMO. All the big launches that we were thinking of, are yet to materialize. The only one that really creates some interest is Aria ( IndiCruz ) and Eko ( Versa ). Eko because it can really be called Omni replacement thanks to price starting from Rs. 2.75 lakh. Aria for obvious reasons.

Everything else is just ordinary. I was expecting :

Maruti Alto with K series.
Maruti YR9 i.e New Wagon R
Maruti YE3 concept
Kizahi hitting streets
New Swift

Hyundai i10 diesel
New Sonata hitting streets

Mahindra SUV. I read that Mahindra is planning replacement of Scorpio and is currently working on all new platform that is also good for developed markets. No news on this.

What we got is cars like Etios that are yet to enter showrooms in Dec 2010. And Honda small car that will come in 2011.

This has been boring to say the least. All the big manufacturers were mainly quite. Nissan and Ford pulled out.

Not the best Auto Expo IMO. I am sure that there will not be any major launches in further days to come.

I have learned of Camber / castor angles in my Mech engg , but the orders were of so small that it would be hardly recognized . And this is done so that once the vehicle is loaded , the weight gets distributed evenly to prevent localized wear and tear in the tyres .
But then this doesnt seem to be that and if it were a Modd , hmm I doubt it that too from TATA ..

The Chevy spark has got this Macho looks after changing the grill . Good tyres too .. !! Hope the same changes get into the Non - electric vehicles too .

That EeCo at 2.75 lakhs ?Isnt that a killer price ?

Cheers to all lucky Fellas out there in the auto expo

OT:

one of the posts say in MSIL, 54.2% is owned by Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp. In that case why is that its called Maruti Suzuki and why not Suzuki Maruti ?

Cool Eye Candy!! Auto Expo 2010

Guys, apologize for delayed post. I went to Autoexpo yesterday on media Invite and here are the eye candies I got to share with you. I also got an oppurtunity to negotiate a exclusive garmin Nuvi 205 deal for TBHP and FiatClubIndia but I am not posting it here due to an earlier comment on my similar post where I wanted to help but was mistaken. So enjoy the pics here
