Nice find. With the recent petrol price hike that would make Nano even more VFM. Any info on when is it going to be launched.

The Micro Hybrid feels a lot better than the DC concept kit. Am sure DC is receiving all the feedback and will hopefully not attempt something so pointless next time.

The Micro Hybrid Taxi would be the Ideal Taxi and be a big fuel saver.

Nice catch, Stable Rock. Personally, I'm not a fan of the start / stop systems as they are impractical to use in dense city traffic. The continuous switching off and starting of the engine can get annoying, and create additional stress on the starter motor / battery / electricals. Not a good thing to have the air-conditioner switch off on a hot summer day either.

Though, those who care only about FE wouldn't mind giving it a try for that extra 1 - 2 kpl.

@ GTO : Thanks for that. I have always wondered how practical these start-stop systems actually are in traffic as crazy as ours.

OT but thought this would be interesting. Nano transported by train/wagon. Look how many nano's they can fit into a wagon. Add another cost cutting to the list.

Thanks for sharing the video. I think this is a great idea, though I would have liked to see some sort of a solid cover on top (instead of cloth), but I do believe that it makes great sense to transport the cars by train, and then drive it from the station to the dealership (or use a intra city truck). Perfect.
