i dunno much about cars, does tis mean it has 2 engines?
624 cc, 2 cylinder, MPFI
n u can c e specs here: http://tatanano.inservices.tatamotors.com/tatamotors/index.php?option=com_whynano&task=specification&Itemid=303
seems pretty decent.. thou the COE (how the government limits cars on e roads is to make them pay for using the road) in Singapore is very steep, at SGD$15,000/10yrs (price fluctuates depending on how many people are bidding for this) now (then e COE will be more expensive then e car itself.. LOL), e luxury model will probably cost SGD$24,000 here.. the luxury model is almost x2 e price but u get air-conditioning/heater, which e basic model does not have, and other features that makes the luxury model safer and prettier..
thou tt means it is still cheap, much cheaper then the cheapest car in Singapore, which is the cherry QQ (china brand and this doesn't even have airbags and is considered by most to be very dangerous to be in) which cost double of this easily..
i wonder thou, how much they are gonna add, both to e car and to the price once they are ready to export..
Singapore definitely will not allow this car as it is now.. since the passenger side does not have the mirror.. n i'm sure it will violate tons of other safety codes.. lol
but all in all, as a car goes, this ride is pretty sweet, its cute and i love how it wouldn't go more then 105km/hr (the limit here on expressways are only 90km/hr) the price is also a deciding factor, as i'm still a student, thou going out into the workforce soon, i would prefer not to be in debt.. ;p and i would so buy it if it comes in auto transmission, for now, its only manual..
thou 1 point to note that is very disturbing is that instead of nuts and bolts to hold the car together, Mr. Tata actually said that they use "modern adhesive" (what modern adhesive? glue *gasp*) in some places and aluminum is substituted for steel and the metal (steel/aluminum) are thinner in some parts too to lower costs.. maybe i'll just wait and hold my breath for anymore news of this, particularly for any accidents, before deciding whether or not to get this if and when it hits our shores..
it did pass Europe's crash test but note that the car used in the test is a new car. would the car fall apart after a few years of use?
