TATA NANO- THE CHEAPEST CAR IN THE WORLD

Updated on February 22, 2008

key facts about the four-door, mini hatchback named the Nano.

Looks: Contemporary looks and almost in sync with that of Zen Estilo and Fiat 500. Its length is 3.1 metres, height is 1.6 metres and width is of 1.5 metres.

Engine: The heart of the car is a rear-mounted two cylinder 623 cc, 33 horsepower, all aluminium, multi-point fuel injection petrol engine which can power the car to top speeds of 105 kilometres per hour (65 miles per hour). Fuel Efficiency: The Nano can do a 20 kilometres per litre, or 50 miles per gallon.

Safety: Mr Ratan Tata said the Nano has an all sheet-metal body, with safety features such as crumple zones, intrusion-resistant doors, seat-belts, strong seats and anchorages, and the rear tailgate glass bonded to the body. Tyres are tubeless.

Environment-friendly: The Peoples Cars tailpipe emission performance exceeds regulatory requirements. In terms of overall pollutants, it has a lower pollution level than two-wheelers being manufactured in the country today. The high fuel efficiency also ensures that the car has low carbon dioxide emissions, thereby providing the twin benefits of an affordable transprtation solution with a low carbon footprint. It is Euro III and the engine has the capability of matching Euro IV norms.

Production Target: 250,000 units at present and with plan to scale it to 3,50,000 units.

Price: Standard model price Rs 1,00,000 (2,500 dollars) plus VAT and transport costs, which will put the on-road price at about Rs 1,20,000. The price of two deluxe models that will include air-conditioning and other features will be announced later.
