With an aim to bring the joy of riding to millions of Indians, Tata Motors India Ltd. unveiled world's cheapest car - Nano, at the Delhi Auto Show held in January 2008. The company revealed that the car has been designed to match the requirements of middle-class Indian families, who aspire to possess mobility, enhanced status and rise in self-esteem and want to pay a small price for their vehicle. Tata Nano has set a trend in the automobile industry of India, debuting a manufacturing era of low cost and eco-friendly automobiles.

Under the hood of the small car lies a powerful 643 cc petrol engine, which is supposed to churn out a power of 33 PS. The engine is equipped with Multi Point Fuel Injection system. It is for the first time that a car has been powered by a two-cylinder gasoline engine, with a single balancer shaft. Tata Nano promises to deliver a top speed of 90 km/hour and good fuel economy.

Design And Comfort
Tata Nano has been designed by keeping in mind the typical small Indian family. With mono-volume design wheels at the corners and power-train at the rear, the small car is surely going to set a new benchmark for mini cars. The super-compact car has roomy interiors, spacious enough to provide a comfortable ride for a family of four.

The sizeable passenger compartment of Tata Nano provides generous legroom. The four-door vehicle, with high seating position, enables easy entry and exit for its occupants. Although the cabin has minimalist equipments, it looks quiet elegant and spacious. Speedometer, fuel gauge, and oil light are integrated into a simple, but smart looking dashboard.

Ride And Handling
The adequate ground clearance of Tata Nano enables effortless maneuver through the busy Indian roads, both in rural and urban areas.
