About Me

They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

    I am feeling SO PROUD that our “Small Wonder” has made it to the National Gepgraphic!!

    As Mr. KP said, Tata Motors have to remove that “cheap” tag as market it the right way!

    The Diesel variant will be a huge success, if Tata Motors plays the game the right way.

    If cars that are not as good as Tata Nano in terms of comfort are selling well in the market, then why not Tata Nano?

    Good luck, Tata Nano!! Way to go!

      tata motors already promoting nano as quality product and it’s features rather than 1 lakh rupee car.Tata nano 2012 TVC focuses mainly on features,and not about price,which is a good move by tata.

    Ahh, little news like this makes us proud. Nano is an engineering marvel, for sure. Its a few other factors which hinder its growth.

    • Bhargava Chandra

      Well said, Mr. Khan!

  • Sachin

    But the NGC MF2 site shows the schedule at 4th june monday 10:00 PM

    • http://indianautosblog.com Kaustubh Shinde

      Yep, that’s a re-run

      We check it on Friday. So we saw Saturday and Sunday.

      As sunday is done now, its showing you future episodes

      • Sachin

        where can i get full video,if i missed that episode?

  • KP

    if nano can do something to leave the cheapest car tag, it will sell like hot cakes. I really loved the design, it is amazing how they can make it so spacious in such a small footprint, however i cannot say the same for the engine.

    We were thinking of replacing out Maruti 800 with the 2012 version, but dropped it because of the cheapest car image.

    • Bhargava Chandra

      I agree with you, Mr. KP

  • sid

    perhaps tata will have to hide the crappy quality constraints …..

    • Bhargava Chandra

      There are no quality issues in Tata Nano. These days even BIKES are selling at Rs. 60,000 to 80,000. Tata Nano is available just at 1.5 Lac

      If we want BMW type quality, we have to pay the price. Tata Nano offers you the best quality for the price!

      Just an example: Just listen to the door shutting sound of a Maruti 800 and the door shutting sound of Tata Nano. Maruti doors sound like a rock hitting an empty metal box and Tata Nano door shut sounds SO much better!

      • CG

        Very True. People who speak about Tata Nano(2012) having quality issues are the ones who has not even sat in one. Its so much better and could see Manza like quality in it. No complains other than the not so fuel efficient Petrol engine. Waiting for the diesel. Would buy just to have one though not in need. Its that prestigious!
        Waiting for the day when home grown products are given importance than foreign products.

      • Kamal

        I agree. I took a test drive of Nano few weeks back again, I have also taken it’s test drive before when it launched, and it is more spacious than many small hatchbacks, build quality and interior quality is quite satisfying as per the price in fact lot better than M800. It is also safer than Marutis. I’m waiting to see how the diesel version of nano will perform, it could be my next car as I need to travel within city 90-95% of time and fuel prices are going up in leaps and bounds.

  • Ajit Singh

    I don’t know what to say…never ever thought that such a day would come too soon.

  • Dr.Rathan

    that’s awesome this little wonder never cease to amaze us .. more to come

  • http://AppsOnWheels.in Tavleen

    That’s quite a feet achieved! Imagine after the Ferraris, jags, bentleys – it is nano! Doing us pride, little thing.

      Well said!! :-)
