The Relationship Manager (RM) of my bank -- who is always customer-focused and who has a gifted ability to explain in detailed technical terms -- has always advised me of financial products that ordinary people have found little value in. Recently, my RM resigned from the bank and joined an automotive service firm.

I got a call from the RM:

Whatsapp forward:

A middle-aged frumpy couple return to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they were interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde.

"I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $75,000 asking price," said the man. "Yet I just heard you close the deal for $65, 000 to the lovely young lady there. You insisted there could be no discount on this model."

"Well, what can I tell you? She had the ready cash and, just look at her, how could I resist?" replied the grinning salesman.

Just then the young woman approached the middle-aged couple and gave them the keys.

"There you go," she said. "I told you I would get the dope to reduce it. See you later, dad.”

This is something I saw on a Tata Ace. It was in Odia. So now trying to recreate the same in English. Enjoy! Hats Off to the idea.

The text has been added using MSpaint or something similar.
Secondly the number plate has a letter "E" which could refer to Spain (Espanol) and definitely not inside India.
Thirdly this looks like an electric vehicle, see the motor coupled with the rear axle.

There is no joke here DrSingh. 18650 cell is a very standard size Lithium Ion tubular cell with 18mm in dia and 650 mm long. Their application is very versatile and almost every Li-Ion cell / battery manufacturer offers this in various Ampere-Hour ratings. Most Laptop batteries are made of this cell. There is no joke or fun in Tesla building their battery packs using these cells. And let us join hands in appreciating the efforts of our Indian Engineers is building some thing that caters the increasing needs of fuel.

I think what he meant is that the ace is not in India, and the TATA too looks off. WOnder what oriya was doing on the back of an ace in spain.
