|Subyek: brand new car for $2,500 Thu May 29, 2008 3:57 pm|| |
Does a brand new car for $2,500 sound good for you? Then Tata Motors has just the car for you.
If you live in India, that is. The tiny little orb of a car, made its debut Thursday at the New Delhi Auto Expo. It is expected to go on sale to Indian consumers later this year, but it won’t hit the export market in the next few years.
Officially, it’s name is the Tata Nano, but its alias is the People’s Car. At that price, it’s definitely intended for the masses. Not all at once, of course–the 10-foot long car will hold only about four people at any given time, and not much in the way of luggage or grocery bags.
The cabin of the car seats four people–”comfortably,” the company says, “with generous leg space and head room.” The four-door (plus tail gate) car is taller than it is wide: 1.6 meters tall by 1.5 meters across. From front to back, it measures 3.1 meters.
The car has a two-cylinder, 623-cc fuel-injection engine. Tata says that this marks the first time that a two-cylinder gas engine is being used in a car with a single balancer shaft.
