March 17, 2008 The Tata Nano is no longer the world's cheapest car! Jostling along with Tata Nano, this July, will be Tara Tiny and Tara Titu. These are zero emission, electric cars and cost only Rs 99,000! And they come from the Tara International stable. Tara S Ganguly, the company's chairman and chief executive officer, had a big dream. And he set about realising it 'in a small way.' Tara International has teamed up with China's Aucma, a leading player in the electrical vehicles and appliances segment, to manufacture these cars. At the moment, four variants of electric cars are ready at the Tara International factory at Palta, a few kilometers from Kolkata. These are Tara Tiny, Tara Titu (two-seater and four-seater, respectively), Tara Shuttle, and Tara Carrier. While Tara Tiny and Tara Titu are priced at Rs 99,000 (approximately), Tara Shuttle and Tara Carrier are priced at Rs 500,000 (approximately). The company will also launch electric bikes priced between Rs 12,000 and Rs 35,000. The Tara series cars are available inelectric red, black and white. Bikes comes in varied hues -- green, blue, red, etc. To know about the specifications of the car and see more pictures of the world's 'cheapest' car. Comments by Yours Truly Vow!! now look at that! The two box Japanese and Korean small cars are looked down upon by the Americans who call them CUB's (Cheap Ugly Boxes).Now we Indians can also get a chance to look down upon this so called Tara (not Tata) as a CUB. The bodyshell is a poor true copy of the Daewoo Matiz which sells as replicas under so many Chinese names. For Rs 99,000 what more can one expect other than a compromise on safety, fit and finish, reliability and so on ? What the user may get is economy.
