Default Tata Nano: A Photologue

Hey guys. I just managed to catch the Nano this time, without half of India swooning over at one given time. Took some nice photos of the Nano. Didn't get to sit inside, but for people (like me), who had not seen too many pictures of the Nano, here's what I saw. Mind you, I was highly impressed, and it could pass of for a 3 lac rupee car easily. The yellow colour gives it a zany and spunky image. Quite impressive for a car that costs as much as a sunroof upgrade in many higher end European cars :-P

Good photos Frank - all of them. Just one crib - wish there was a full photo as well.
The hazard indicator button seems to be hidden from the driver and am sure there will be a lot of people who either will forget they have such a button or will drive around forgetting to switch it off after switching it on.
The alloys definitely look nice.
Am not too sure about the yellow color. Autos in Chennai are this exact color of yellow. I wouldnt dare buy one in yellow in Chennai :-).

Also noticed the fuel cap is inside the bonnet (cars front left side) ? Thats going to suck at the petrol pumps.

Pretty impressive! I like the fact that its compact, and yet doesn't seem to lack in very many areas.

OT:I was told that about 75,000 auto drivers (all over India,I presume) have decided to go in for the Nano as a taxi. Any truth in this?

thanks guys. these photos have been taken from my trusty 5800 expressmusic, since there was no camera at hand. thankfully i got a lot of time to take as many photos as i could, but i couldnt take a full photo because there was a lot of barricading around the car. it would have spoiled the photo. i like the amount of space there is between the rear and front seats. couldnt capture it on film, but certainly looked more than the alto and the a star and the zen estilo!

Same here, I also checked out the LX version, but there was no sign of neither the ICE nor the AlLoy wheels.
If these two are are not optional and standard fitments to the the LX, then it surely is heck of a value car.
More car per car.
