Tata Nano Air
A lot of has been said about Tata Nano in the past few weeks. Many like me feel a sense of pride at the achievement. Many like me are also concerned about the environmental ramifications of Nano.
In terms of fuel economy, it might be as good if not better than a Toyota Prius. The volume of adoption will however be the devil.
One can argue that 2 wheelers and 3 wheelers are the single largest source of air pollution in Indian cities. If they were to be replaced with a much cleaner vehicle like Nano, wouldn't it be better?.... I am not so sure.
What I am sure about is this, a true peoples car will have to be easy on people's wealth and environmental health. What we need is Nano Air. A Nano running on compressed air.
It has been almost a year since Tata Motors signed an agreement with MDI of France. Nano is the perfect platform to be airborne.
Mr Ratan Tata make us all proud.
