The Tata Nano is a very important milestone in Indian automobile history. It marked India in the global automotive scene as one of the most capable. It is the world’s cheapest car in the world, at Rs. 1,00,000, when launched. But far from a cheap, low quality city runabout. Tata has launched the Nano as a family car for four or five people. The realization of this car was an engineering and design challenge. To keep cost to a minimum, extreme engineering measures had to be taken, with clever and ingenious industrial design.
