The Tato Nano took the world by storm, especially in India where such a car seems needed considering that this opens the opportunity for poorer households to finally afford a car. The big three auto manufacturers in the USA said it couldn’t be done. Now the Western World is asking why they can’t have their own Tato Nano type cars?
The four-seater Nano travels 100 kilometers on 4.2 liters of fuel, getting 55.5 miles per gallon. Those who have test driven the car say it does feel like a real car and not just another golf cart. The Nano has been released at a low price of around $2000 USD per car.
In the future they plan to bring the Indian Tato Nano to Europe and the USA, for a slightly higher price since they have to retool it to meet safety standards, and could come out as early as next year.
Though this seems like a race to the bottom, the Tato Nano is something that probably many people would buy. It’s a cheap alternative to getting a scooter and it will get you around town.
