If it comes in india , it'll be a spot hit...But it looks too small for a car..

Its a cute little car.

If it launched in India, I think it can have a great success.

It can become the most practical office going car.

Excellent FE, relief in traffic & parking (baby size) & above all comfort of a car!

May be TATA should launch this Nano Mini!!

sir,i am a part of the supermileage vehicle team of delhi college of engineering.
and its really requires a lot of thinking over to provide such outputs..till now we have been able to manage 600kms per litre theoritically but get around 270,,less than 50% in practicality.

See this link for the world's most fuel efficient cars:

The PAC-Car II set a new world record in fuel efficient driving during the Shell Eco-marathon in Ladoux (France) on June 26, 2005. Running on hydrogen, the PAC-Car II achieved the equivalent of 5,385 km per liter of gasoline (12,666 MPG!)

Extreme MPG

VW - L1 Concept - 2 Seater - 800CC - 2 Cylinder CRDI TDI Diesel + Electric Hybrid - Could be very good car. It will be great if it is priced around 2 lakhs....!! Interesting to see when and which all countries it will be launched.

I like the way they've retained the typical VW Golf/Jetta-ness in the headlamps even though the rest of the car design is pretty unusual.
If this really ends up hitting Indian shores, I'm sure it'll be a star!!
I also like those rear view cameras they've got on the sides. Very innovative stuff for a car so economical.
