Tata Nano Video First Time Seen in Motion

As the world's cheapest car, the Tata Nano, has the ability to really upset the economic balance of emerging markets. Therefore, Tata kept the development of the Nano extremely quiet with no information leaking until the car's official debut at the Delhi Autoexpo earlier this year. Even since, the Nano has never been photographed testing, until now. An observant Indian man who thankfully had a video camera, caught a base model Nano strolling down the famous Pune-Mumbai express way performing a test run.

Currently, land disputes for the originally proposed plant location threatened to delay the market launch, but Tata quickly assembled a backup location. Perhaps a blessing in disguise, Tata has begun to use the backup facility to produce a small batch of test vehicles in order to evaluate the efficiency of the production line, and therefore correct any problems prior to full mass production which begins in September.

Some of the world's most ancient universities were in India. If you don't like the Tata Nano, then why do you waste your time irritating others, visiting this page and typing such biased comments?! Sure the Tata might not be as safe as a Mercedes, but it will be safer than the safest 2 wheeler. It was designed for people who want a car, but can't afford one. Sure, a bike makes more sense. But a family of four needs a car. Indians are just as much as human as you are. There's no doubt that this car makes more sense than any bike(for a family).

Alright!!! The nano may be a laughing stock!!! But there are bigger thing to laugh about, like......... ASton Martin owned by Kuwaitis, MG Rover owned by the Chinese etc. Besides,TATA NANO WILL BE SAFER AND OF BETTER QUALITY THAN THE BEST CARS MADE BY "BRITISH LEYLAND"!!!!! As you know, leyland is without argument the worst car builder that ever existed in the UNIVERSE. So. laugh about that, brit!!!

Who the heck is this wolff plonker , always banging on about how good tata is , i should think that after alot of your comments your about 14 years old , Agreed TATA is a big company , but if you want a car that has wafer thin metal and runs on tea leaves and a N-CAP RATING OF -10 then we wouldnt go wrong with a NANA oops NANO , if it came to the Uk then you would be a laughing stock , there is potholes big enough to swallow lorries there. As for the price, my KONA mountain bike was $2600 and will outlast a car with wheel barrow wheels and .. No soul!! Big car companies Had ugly beginings?? what are you on about Just look at how sexy the early Audis , Mercs and bmws even Ford were , hand made with passion , But best of all the VW beetle still going strong after a world war! If this NANA oops NANO can last that long i will give you a pat on the back .. Thankyou

I would rather walk; get all soaked in the rain, frozen in the snow and melted in the heat than drive this piece of crap! Its ugly, undoubtedly, unsafe and a complete embarrassment. Yes it will work in poor masses of India, but that is where it will stay.

wow... for 2500 dollars that an amazing achievement (i mean u can take out everything in another car including ac and vents and plastics and sh*t, but it still wouldn't get close to the 2500 dollar price). bang for buck anyone :P haha

wow i thought it would look alot more skinnier! in photos it looked soo slim! ... but it looks wide enough to handle decently without tipping over! either way its gonna be a HUGE hit in city, highways you dont need to go above 100km/h anyways. Besides have u seen the mpg on it :P ... as long as they make reliable and cheap it will disappear faster than a fat kid on cake.
