I think I stole the title from an old Citroën 2CV advert: “All the car you actually need”?
The Tata Nano hasn’t quite hit the sales predictions but cheap doesn’t have to mean bad, simple is clever. As I said when it launched, this little car really embodies the thinking which created iconic cars like the VW Beetle, Fiat Nuova 500 (Bambina in NZ) and Mini. It’s certainly closer than their modern, marketing driven, parodies have managed.
Jay’s Garage is worth watching, if only to see how Tata have made the world’s cheapest car outperform a McLaren supercar. I also like his smile factor method of judging quality.
