    I think that is the nicest thing to happen for millions of middle-class Indians. Two-wheeler owners who were intending to upgrade to Four-wheelers should be happy to get something like this. Though NANO shouldn't be compared as such with other high-range cars, within its category it has managed to gain some brownie points from many car analysts.

    Lets wait and watch. The initial down payment of Rs 2999 would be tempting for many. They can be booked from as many as 1000 cities across India and the forms are available in SBI counters.

    Certainly commendable. While it will make the roads a little more congested, the fact is many people over there drive scooters already and entire families ride in them. This will hopefully be a safer alternative.

    it's a good car for driving only. You don't have any comfort there.

    I heard on NPR that they were only planning on making 100K for this first run and were going to do some sort of lottery for those who had paid the down payment.

    It will be interesting to see how this first run goes...

    this car was on the news here yesterday

    apparently it pollutes like mad, and consequently, it cannot be sold in north america

    just what indian cities need -- more pollution

    I question whether if the Tata Nano will help improve the lives of people in India, or will it just introduce them to road rage ....Considering the highly populated streets....imagine streets full of traffic jammed up Tata Nanos
