    Everyone say Tata to the expensive city car.

    Recent reports in the Times Online and The Guardian, announced that India has just launched the world's cheapest car. The new 'Nano' rolls out of the plant with a price tag of only 100,000 rupees (£1350). It will exported to richer nations, starting with Europe by 2011 by which time, after Europe safety standards are met, it is anticipated it will cost around £4500. This wonderful low-cost 4 door family transporter is a great development from India that has been five years in the making during which time the manufacturers have overcome many setbacks.The car specifications are as follows: 
    Engine: 623cc, four-valve, all aluminium twin-cylinder unit, fed by cheap Bosch fuel-injection system.
    Power: 33bhp @5250rpm 
    Torque: 35lb ft @2500rpm 
    Transmission: 4 Speed Manual 
    Fuel Economy: A whopping 67mpg
    CO2 Emissions: 110g/km or less. That may not sound very impressive but it's claimed to be 12% less than any motorbike in the country.
    Acceleration: 0-62mph in 35.1 sec
    Top Speed: 65mph
    The great thing about the Nano is that it is a city car. It is simple and cost effective enough to bring a smile to our faces. Going to get your weekly food shop? Hop into your Nano. Going to pick up the kids from the local school? Hop into the Nano. The Times says that this is going to be 'the biggest small car in the world'. Lets hope it lives up to expectation.
