Our new ride

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on July 28, 2013

Tata-Nano

We have finally bought a piece of history. Yes, when Ratan Tata launched the $2000 car, he changed the game forever. Tata Nano will always find a special mention in the annals of automotive innovations. Since 2009, I have wanted to own one, a wish that came true last week. I am happy ๐Ÿ™‚ and so is Appu!

Tata Nano45 miles to a gallon, 650 cc engine that ย revs up a maximum speed of 65 mph and you have a car great for city driving in India. ย It doesn’t cost $2000 anymore, yet the price tag of $4000 for a fully loaded version is still worth every drop of gas saved.

It does take sometime getting used to. Sitting in one feels like being inside a “pimped” egg shell. There is enough room for 4 decently sized human beings. You do have to compromise with a mere 80 L boot space. ย But then again, at this price and mileage, it doesn’t hurt.

So, if any one of you wants a ride in this toy, do come over. We’d be glad to share our piece of joy ๐Ÿ™‚
