Delhi Auto Expo 2008 Pictures

Recommended Posts

FRG from the auto expo reporting.

The 2008 expo is one busy affair this year as well, good looking cars with lots of eyecandy. The autocar stall at hall 7 is showcasing one Ferrari F430 and a Lamborghini Gallardo.

 

The highlight today has been the launch of the Tata One Lakh Car. Its been christened the Nano. Have to say its good looking. It was revealed today for the first time to the public, and as expected everybody made a beeline for it. The pics are coming real quick.

 

Will be updating this thread as and when something interesting happens.

they will have to change the name for sure.......ccopyright issues......Apple(in iPod) already have usd the name nano

i dont think they will have any copyright issues unless they use the name for another music player. since its for a car and its no where related to the ipod nano, it should be safe

It is anyway better than a bike in terms of safety and I'm also sure this car would be more safe than a maruti van.

So guys, please grow up..Learn to appreciate when you need to.

Your criticism can wait.

In terms of safety, take the public transportation, with the acceleration of the Nano, its likely to be squashed by a Volvo or a MAN or a Scorpio or Safari. I am not saying the Maruti Van is the safest, but its still safer than Nano. The Nano is small and like Matiz has a sloped hood, in case of contact with anything or any animal, there is full likelihood of the object coming inside the passenger area and causing severe damage.

If you are telling us to hold our criticism, that too in a forum may I suggest so should your ranting. You are repeating Rattan Tata's ad line about families on bikes, well guess what, first off all, learn responsible parenthood. Have some money in pocket before bringing in souls to this earth you can hardly maintain. In case they need a car that bad, a second hand Maruti would be apt for them. Already the Tata Ace is a veritable nuisance on the roads and highways, this will just add fuel to the fire and make driving for us a nightmare. Lastly, driving is indeed a privilege all of us have worked hard to appreciate and earn it, lets not make it cheap so that the total appreciation and value of a driving license is totally lost.

and ya the top speed of the car is 110km/hr.... shouldn't they electronically set to 60km for safety reasons?....

Do you really feel like running it over with your Scorpio or Innova or Safari?

The Bajaj Lite is better in aesthetics. This car would only be attracted by those who wish to buy a car thats cheap. In that sense it will justify Ratan Tata's idea behind this car.Trafic will become terrific.The Tatas and dealers will get good profit from its sevice because of the quality of Tatas in general.

Bajaj Lite also has Nissan to chip in and for powertrain, thats the best asset to have.

I would like to ask which car will survive a crash with MAN truck or a Volvo? I think it is wrong to accuse people of towing Ratan Tata's line when in effect they too can be accused to towing the anti Tata line.  What are the grounds on which you say a Maruti van is safer than the Nano.  Forums are for discussions and not for shoving opinions down peoples throats, especially when there is no wisdom in them.
