    Default (((((((( Tata nano Fan Club ))))))))

    This thread is for the Tata nano fans for the latest news, photos and discussions about the car.


    "A promise is a promise", this is what Ratan Tata (chairman Tata Group) has said about the 1 lakh price tag of the Tata nano car when it was unvielded at the 2008 Auto Expo in New Delhi.


    The Tata nano has been the center of attaction of the World media. The 'People's Car' as Mr. Ratan Tata calls the nano, is available for booking from 9'th April 2009.


     Tata nano Fan Club  -582203













    Performance & Specifications:

    The 2-cylinder engine – delivering 35 PS @ 5250 rpm and a torque of 48 Nm @ 3000 rpm – enables the car to have a top speed of 105 kmph (limited electronically) and negotiate inclines with a gradeability of 30%.








    Fuel efficiency:

    23.6 km/litre, certified by the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) under mandated test conditions, which is the highest for any petrol car in India.




    Emission:

    The high fuel efficiency, coupled with a low kerb weight of 600 kg, ensures that the Tata Nano – at 101gm/km - has the CO2 emission of cars in India. The Tata Nano is BS-III (Bharat Stage III) compliant and is BS-IV ready. It is also available in BS-II norms.






    Safety:

    The Tata Nano’s safety performance exceeds current regulatory requirements – it passes the roll-over test and offset impact, which are not regulated in India. It has an all sheet-metal body, reinforced passenger compartment, crumple zones, intrusion-resistant doors, besides mandatory seat belts and complies fully with existing Indian safety standards. Tubeless tyres – among which the rear ones are wider endowing extra stability – enhance safety.








    Warranty: 18 months or 24,000 km

    , whichever is earlier.

    a lovely effort by TATA to bench mark the Market/Region with a vehicle keeping economical and price factor in mind.

    Nano and the Fairer Sex: Smooth moves!







    Nupur Chaudhuri and Corina B Manuel Photography: Kunal Khadse





    The Nano can definitely make girls switch to cars from dolls!




     Tata nano Fan Club  -936650





    With a slight turn of the key, the car comes to life. An easy shift from neutral to first, and I'm off. Three more easy gear shifts to second, third and fourth, and the Nano has won me over. I drive with a smile, the smile that spunkiness brings to my lips.






    The Nano is just that -a blend of spunk and chic; the perfect car for the woman of today, I'd say. It scores right from the first glance. To add to its ultra cute shape, its colours are hard to resist, right from the pearly white to the modish yellow.






    The first feature about the car's interior that gets a thumbs-up is the space. The Nano isn't here to cramp your style, no way, not with the leg room and sitting space it offers! Girls, you can wear your four-inch stilettos, and sit pretty with your legs crossed at the ankle without having to fight for space. There's absolutely no need of wrestling with the seat to get it forward or backward - you just sit there and enjoy the roominess.






     Tata nano Fan Club  -936651







    It doesn't end there. Now, we girls have to admit we come with baggage - make-up, sunnies, cell phones, wallets, chocolates, flowers, clutch bags, etcetera, etcetera! If we have a large enough sling bag, then the problem of dumping the baggage is solved. But, on the occasions that we aren't adequately equipped, it's the Nano's dashboard that comes to the rescue! You can just throw all the stuff in the niches provided and drive without a worry about them things being reflected in the windscreen. Nice, huh?











    What could be better ....






    The Nano could run into a bit of potholes and speed-breakers in four key areas. One, the absence of a boot. When there're just two travelling, the back seat can fold down to accommodate luggage, but when you're a fashion journalist, and are off for a schizoid fashion shoot with wardrobe, make-up kit and technical artists in your wake, you get a little closet claustrophobic and end up wondering whom to pick and whom to dump! So, if the practical side of you comes awake, you might have to choose your wardrobe and your make-up kit along with two of your technical crew while the third one might have to hitch a ride with someone else. But hey, all said and done, the price we're getting the car at irons out the bumps in the road.







     Tata nano Fan Club  -936652







    Coming to the drive, the Nano can dart through city traffic with an easy smoothness and with a great mileage of 20kmpl or so we're told. The ride may get bumpy, but then the car handles well and is sturdy. Its size makes it a perfect car to take out without worrying about parking space, because it would fit just about anywhere. But girls, you need to be prepared for a little struggle at the wheel as it ain't power steering. I don't mean grunting and groaning; just a little extra tug at the wheel will do, especially during u-turns!






    The Nano downs its scores even when it comes to the power windows, or should I say, the controls of the power windows? They're between the seats, below the air-con, and the driver would have to look away from the road to find the control - not the safest thing to do right? So either the one on the passenger seat lends a helping hand or then the driver has to do some getting used to!






    The specs also reveal that the Nano has a small petrol tank, and you can only fill her up to 15 litres, which could play spoilt sport for a romantic long drive with your better half. So, for right now, long drives are off the cards!






    Like every car, the Nano comes with its positives and negatives, but unlike every car, the Nano is priced at a grabbing price! Would I buy it? Yes, without a second thought!

    Tata Motors sells over 51,000 Nano booking forms in three days


    Original Story- Economictimes




    MUMBAI: A nation can barely hold its excitement, as it waits to bring the baby home. Tata Motors dealers alone have sold over 51,000 forms for NANO Nano in pics Nano Europa Price of Nano variants From the Maruti stable Maruti A-star the Nano in just five days since they became available from April 1, given that the company is likely to manufacture just 50,000 cars in the first year.




    The booking amount too ranges from a heavy Rs 95,000 to Rs 1,40,000. Industry observers said this is no mean achievement, considering that it excludes forms sold through 30,000 other locations such as SBI, its subsidiaries and associates, other preferred financiers and outlets of Tata Finance, Westside, Croma, Titan and Tata Indicom.


    “The response has been quite good, even though customers have not been given a chance to test-drive the car,” said an official at a Mumbai-based Tata Motors dealership, who asked not to be named. The forms are being sold for Rs 300, of which Tata Motors retains Rs 250 and the dealer, the remaining Rs 50. The rush isn’t just coming in from eager customers, with dealers across the country making a beeline for forms. Some are understood to have picked up as many as 20,000 forms each, with smaller dealers buying as many as 5,000 forms to cater to the rush for the world’s cheapest car.


    According to people close to the development, Tata Motors is expected to earn around Rs 30 crore from the sale of around 10 lakh forms at Rs 300 per form, through 218 dealers.

    It's amazing they actually pulled it off. There were quite a few setbacks, but they came out with it as promised. Let's hope for the best, now.

    The effort is good but promise not kept, price has gone way beyond 1 lac.


    Once it is launched Maruti 800 will price down to 1.59 lac ex showroom.( Insider news )


    At 1.23 lac base model price on road in Delhi people will be forced to look at second hand options of other cars. What happens when summer comes - AC power ?? Its not capable. Additional 15-20000 rupees for AC. Might as well buy good old M-800 from True Value than buying this low quality contraption called Nano.


    Tata can't fool Indians once more with low quality 4wheelers as they did for years with Indica and stuff.


    Personal car owners don't buy Tata cars anymore in India. Its only taxi operators who like to buy due to ow initial price tag.


    This car like other tata cars will find a place in taxi stands with Bajaj Auto RE Autorickshaw CNG kit fitted in it.


    Good luck to Tata.


    OK TATA - FIR MILENGE.

    Only a mentally challenged person can think of buying a maruti 800 in 2009
    Or someone looking for better value for their money.


    Don't forget, the intended market for NANO is the traditional two wheel ride buyers. If TATA started marketing this microcar to traditional car buyers, don't they run the risk of cannibalizing their own sales?
    My opinions, suggestions and thoughts are strictly my own. I reserve the right to be human and make mistakes.

    @ Desiboy , you are very right when you call people mentally challenged, buying 800 even now as it still holds value for money for years, which an Indian buyer looks for even now, and with a reduced price 0f 1.59 or 1.69, it will become a very active consideration for Nano buyers,


    I am not saying Nano will not sell, what I am saying is that nano will compete more in the taxi segement and tata is not a very favourable brand in India amongst car buyers of any segment except Taxi operators across the nation, or maybe Safari in Punjab.


    I didnt want to hurt your love for nano at all. I am sorry if I did that.


    The concept is good but has a major handicap - engine capacity and price not matching, sizewise its a good one, however.


    Nano will create a new segment - of people who never onwed any car so far. They may not be essentially previous car owners. May be first time buyers who want to buy cheap but 1st hand, tata will promote the car with lots of finance options I am sure, but lets see what happens to Nano in the consumer segments - Taxi as well as Owner Drives.


    Lets keep fingers crossed - only time will tell what Nano is worth but please remember that Value for money for years holds true of all Asisn buyers, we are not in use and throw economy even now, at least not in automobiles.


    Best of luck tata nano - OK TATA FIR MILENGE

    Yes its actually not proper to compare the Tata nano with the Maruti 800, since the maruti 800 is almost a dead model. it hardly sells in India presently.


    the 800 will stop selling in major Indian cities by 2010 since it won't be able to comply with Indian emission norms.





    all who still like to hold on to the past can do so.
