I think the Nano should be available off-the-shelf. Only then will the purpose of a cheap commuter be served. I think Tata has had a very rough beginning for it's baby, hope things smoothen out as Sanand goes on stream. They should make atleast 2-3 lakhs a month to satisfy the nascent demand, or people will get fed up.

The future is "small"' date=' the future is "compact"!

I've voluntarily given up on Sedans/saloons for the lack of space on our roads.

I am planning to go for a big SUV in recent future.smiley17.gif.

The nano is obviously a nice car and it is a revolution in this auto industry. But one thing i still cant like is its ride and handling. Even if someone drove a M800 before buying a Nano, he would stop liking the car from day1. There is hardly any quick throttle response and seems like it will turn turtle if you go in a corner at 35kmph. There is a feeling of improper weight distribution and ride is harsh compared to a M800. I still cannot digest the fact that it is an alternative to M800/ Alto.

See, in the case of SUV's its different. The Indian bred SUV's can cruise along the City roads with aplomb with pedestrian traffic giving way & minor bumps/scratches don't matter. While bumper to bumper traffic makes life in a Sedan close to hell!

 

When I said "Small & compact", I literally did not mean Nano but the whole bunch of small cars. These small hatches, be even premium, make driving within the clogged City streets easier.

I agreesmiley20.gif.

But i find sedans(midsize) very useful and practical because of that boot. Hatches come with tax benefits, less price and more features per price in comparison to sedans but i find hatches very confined in use(only in cities and short highway trios), whereas sedans can be taken for long tours too.

Yes, that depends upon the family size, for singles like me, one can flip the rear seats & voila, take as much luggage you want to!

Modern premium hatches are no less highway cruisers than Sedans. Fabia, i20, etc. do the job pretty well.

Wheelbase does have its limitations but is felt if one is really performance oriented.
