Nano on display in Goa
PANJIM, MARCH 31
The world’s most eagerly awaited car, the Tata Nano, will be on display from April 1 at the Auto Industries showroom in Nuvem, near Margao. The car, which is up for booking, will be available in standard and deluxe versions.
Despite being the cheapest car in the world at around Rs 1.20 lakh on the road, the Nano is designed with a family in mind, and has a more roomy interior than the Maruti 800. The Nano has an all-aluminium, two-cylinder, 623 cc, 33 PS, rear-mounted multi point fuel injection petrol engine. It offers a mileage of 22 kmpl. (This is NOT an April Fool joke.)
