The Tata Nano is a proposed city car †a small, affordable, rear-engined, four-passenger car aimed primarily at the Indian market †first presented by India’s Tata Motors at the 9th annual Auto Expo on January 10, 2008 at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, India.

Tata targets the vehicle as the least expensive production car in the world †aiming for a starting price of 100,000 rupees or approximately $2300 US.

Newsweek identifies the Nano as a part of a “new breed of 21st-century cars” that embody “a contrarian philosophy of smaller, lighter, cheaper” and portend a new era in inexpensive personal transportation †and potentially, “global gridlock” . The Wall Street Journal confirms a global trend toward small cars, which includes the Nano.

The prefix “Nano” derives from the Greek root ‘nanos’, meaning dwarf †as with nanometre. “Nano” also means “small” in Gujarati, the native language of the Tata family, founders of the Tata Group.

      So THAT’s what those woollen things were a few posts back! You know I thought they were? br……

      Actually never mind.

      21st Century equivalent of the VW Beetle

      Nothing beats the Yugo and it’s price…

    4. deuce says:

      I’d love to see the crash ratings on that… probably somewhere between Big Wheel and tissue paper.

    5. deleted_user says:

      Does it come with lifetime Tatacare?

    6. awfulintentions says:

      I wouldn’t be caught driving one of those.

      Safety reasons aside.

      I’ll keep my current car thank you. ( Hey, only cost me $17 to fill my tank the other day! I can handle that! )

    7. Tyger42 says:

      Nano means small in other languages, too. And “Tata” means tit. So, the car is called small tits?

    8. Tyger42 says:

      On a more serious note, that thing can’t score well in safety tests. :p And I seriously doubt my 6’4″ self could fit in it anyway.

      is this a follow up on that xzibit picture? must be the car in the car so u can drive while u drive

      Best thing about it?

      If you lose it in a car park, or when you’re drunk, you can just buy another one with your pocket change.

    11. Elepski says:

      I wanted to get one as a dingy for my truck!

    12. storminator says:

      not even if it ran on tap water…

    13. NoOneInParticular says:

      Most men like tatas to be grande, not nano. 🙂

    14. The Dude says:

      Would not mind having one of these little grocery getters to run around the area for day to day tasks and only drive my car when having a family outing or things like that. Something like this would totally give the US economy a boost!! Wink wink American Auto Makers!
