I saw Clarkson's take on the Peel car.
He was of the opinion that this is the what we need.
Maybe the Nano will get a such more positive response than what we think.

JC was amazed by the Peel car for its dimensions and the level of practicality.
Nano only has its price going for it.

Fifth Gear have spoken about Tata Nano yet again, this time when John goes to the Geneva Motor Show, he tries to see the quality of the car and ends up fighting with the Tata executive.

Any idea about what was the fighting about?

He goes and crosses the barricade and starts shaking the car and pressing it to see how tough it is. The TATA executive comes in and asks him to stop.

The Fifth-gear birdbrain wanted to ridicule the Nano and thats exactly what he's managed.
