There seems to be a number of articles and videos about the Tata Nano on the web now. I find it quite interesting that they talk of bringing it to the west, but do not mention important things to western buyers like acceleration. With a top speed of less than 120km/h, I don’t know anybody that would buy one. Even off of main highways, people drive much faster than they could in Indian cities.
On the other hand, I can see the Tata Nano decimating the lower part of Toyota’s car range. Toyota makes boring cars that look like appliances. At least based on fit and finish, Tata seems to have come up with a very appliance-like car.
I would drive one if only to see how it performs off road…
