Hi Sourvav, very much doable. Gone are the old Ambassador/Fiat days! You may get tired, sleepy etc etc but the modern cars will remain strong throughout ;-)

Hope that helps!

Cheers and have a safe drive!

wow, I thought my thread was closed :-). I guess Nano was not enough for me & I did one more Kolkata trip in my Ritz last year it was as good as the one I did two years back!

Great to hear that you did the trip again, how about writing a travelogue for that one and comparing the two different class of cars ?

Hey Kannan,

Will surely write one. Waiting to sit down and pen down it some time soon.

It is a bit late to be posting this, but i should thank you MadTiger, and of course, our beloved Sam for the inspiration. I did a solo Nano drive from Pune to Gurgaon in May 2015. Being unsure of how the car would hold up, i had planned a 3 day drive covering approximately 500kms each day. First day i stuck to the plan, but the car gave me so much confidence that i completed the rest 1000 odd kms on the second day cruising mostly around 80kmph and about 20hrs of driving with some refreshment stops. I must say that my respect for the little thing went up a few notches after that drive. Only issue i faced was that AC blower kept conking off after a few hours of driving on Day 1. Day 2, it somehow self healed.

But i suggest, you drive down in winter rather than in summer. The weather and ambient temperature will be far more conducive.
All the best !
I will definitely do a "Bangalore-Kolkata-Bangalore" once at least, It is on top of my to-drive-list.

I have never come across anything like this. Solo driving a Nano all the way to Kolkata from Bangalore and back. Quite remarkable.

An excellent travelogue, I must say! Hats off to your confidence and will to make it there and back in a Nano. My perception for Nano

I am also planning to drive down my Brio from Bangalore to Kolkata sometime soon. So my question is - how long can I drive my KA-53 registered vehicle on Kolkata streets safely (or legally) without being harassed by the cops there? I tried searching for this bit of info from WB RTO site but couldn't find anything on these lines.
