Is it me or something, according to me the car will surely not succeed if its a four seater.
As car like this is better sold off with two seats and four in Euro market. They should consider four seats only for Indian market.
Come on, no one will Europe buy a cramped four seater, instead they will prefer spacious two seaters.

Great job Tata! In bringing the brand in global consciousness on an ongoing basis.

OT: I hope you get some of your guys to work on the interiors of your cars sold in India
I would like to contribute to your efforts by buying from you, but the interiors really scare me (though I have heard the new Manza is great)

That's awesome design...just who are the people behind this fantastic detailing?

And a great name too!

The whole concept is on par with some of the creations penned by certain Italian gentlemen.

Is it that cramped compared any other compact hatch in Europe? Mitsubishi i, Toyota small car,etc. are having almost the same space in the rear IMO. Even the Smart is cramped compared to nano or pixel in the front leg room space I feel( need to check the actual dimensions ofcourse). But still it has it's own market.
Let's see how the Europe's market is going to respond to the actual production car.

Lovely!!!
Don't really care about that back seat space and all. Like those +/- on foot pedals..

The long scissor doors make getting into this 2-door easy for rear passengers too
Cool rear bench design (though this would be one of the things that probably wouldn't make it past concept car stage - due to safety regulations).
Its kinda cute, a Scooty pep of a car.

Looks like something daddy would like to gift his teenage daughter for passing her tenth board.

But good for Tata's for not stopping at Nano and taking it further.

Amazing. A product definitely worthy of being displayed in a JLR showroom. It can be easily marketed as a lifestyle product if done properly.

Can anyone confirm if this is the outcome of the Nano Europa project? This somehow reminds me of Apple products. May be they can add an "i" to Pixel. iPixel. It sounds good too!!

Beautiful looking concept. I hope Tata won't keep it just as concept! And not take as long a time as Aria took to become a reality!

I think Tata really need to have one stylish/beautiful/head-turner car in their lineup. Will help them immensely to build their image.

Whoa! Looks like a nice little toy!

Going by the interior, it seems like a touch-and-go car; you just press a button and off you'll be. Attractive centre console! Very cute interiors on the whole! The gear box and dashboard is sinfully nice!

I just hope it sounds cool; given the diesel engine, they should make the engine sound nice and unlike the Nano which sounds like an auto.

The "Drawer" at the rear makes it look a refrigerator!

Overall, a wonderful toy to own!

An afterthought : They could make this their first hybrid car. Would sell like hot pancakes.

Beautiful concept from TATA! Remains to be seen how much they are able to convert into the production version though!

But, the rear design looks dangerous to me. Production version may resemble the Ritz rear end, which has not been widely accepted for its looks.

Man this car has blown me away! Even if this car sees production in the future, I dont think the whole 'galaxy tab' thing will be introduced. Also, the doors wont be 'wings'.
IMHO, the turning radius will be the best selling point and it definitely should be a fully electric car or a nice parallel hybrid car.

The Tata Pixel looks so similar to the Nido ev Electric Vehicle by Pininfarina S.p.A.

Nido is a small two-seater car with innovative safety measures for passengers as well as pedestrians.
As crumple zones are less meaningful in a small car, Nido innovates a new principle instead.
Seats mounted on a movable inner sled, within a rigid outer egg shell.
The inner sled and outer shell are connected by 3 energy absorbing honeycomb sections of different density.

The steering wheel and pedals operate on a steer-by-wire, brake-by-wire basis, and break-away in a collision to protect the human beings inside.

Power comes from a 30 kiloWatt motor running on a 21 kiloWatt hour battery. It can reach 90 km/h in 6.7 seconds and drive 139 km on a single charge.
