The People’s Car: Nano from Tata

March 24, 2009

Learn from this, Big Three! These funny, non-offensive, and already familiar four-letter words describe the new eco-car. In this case eco- stands for economy as well as ecology, as this car costs only $2,200 and gets 47 miles to the gallon. A perfect fit for the budget and the climate. Just keep in mind, with a 2-cylinder engine, the Nano from India reaches a top speed of 65 mph. No drag racing here, just affordability and responsibility. I wonder if any of these principles will find their way into the Land Rover line that was sold by Ford to Tata in 2007.
