hi archit

800 takes 26.95 sec for 0-100km/h but what matters is really 20 to 80 km/h where she takes 15.46 sec and isn't far behind bigger cars... try overtaking bigger cars on a flyover and you will be surprised by th performance of the veteran!!!

Well for 1 lac rupees, what do you expect? A Ferrari

 

Remember Citroen 2CV? That was also a similar car but sold in millions in Europe only.

 

Apart from car magazines, general public everywhere is hardly bothered about 0-60 timings, as they are more concerned about other factors affordability, comfort and after sales service etc.

Most of the Nanos will be for family use , and no boy racer is going to buy the Nano( the 0.6 liter version ) . It's job is to ferry people from one point to another in comfort and safely and it does an exceptional job in that . Why are you guys talking about it's performance . and 0-100 in 17 sec is not bad at all considering it's also very efficient..
