Tata Nano Poised to Take Over the World at 56 MPG

Tata Nano

The Tata Nano finally released commercially in India today. It’s been a long wait for the little car, which has been upset by protests, among other things. For about a year now people have been excited to see how this little car would change the automotive world by getting a whole new class of drivers on the road, and in fuel efficient style.

The Tata Nano will cost $1,985 dollars. For that price you get a 624cc, 2-cylinder engine that is capable of putting out up to 56 MPG (US). Of course, those are not EPA specs so you can’t compare them directly to what the EPA says about cars in the US, but nevertheless, they are impressive numbers.

No doubt this release will trigger the alarms of many environmentalists and safety advocates. India has become notorious for both dangerous driving and issues of environmental pollution, neither of which will be lessened by a flood of cheap cars onto the marketplace. However, no one can yet predict the lasting impact this car will have on India or the global auto industry.
