Nano, the small car that rattled the global automobile industry, is going to make its international debut at the 78th Geneva Motor Show in the first week of March 2008. Nano, nicknamed ‘The People’s Car’, the world’s cheapest car priced at Rs. 100,000 (US$2500) was launched earlier this year at an Auto Expo in New Delhi. Nano will be available in the market from the second half of this year. With Nano being affordable, meeting all the safety norms (as per Tata Motors), there is no doubt that the People’s car would replace majority of the two wheelers as it will be a fortunate thing to happen in the lives of middle class and lower middle class families making them proud car owners.
Hats off to Tata Motors and Ratan Tata for placing India on the global automotive map!
