In February 2014, the crew over at Tata Motors will be revealing their Nano diesel at the Auto Expo, India’s biggest automotive exhibition.

Their goal is to show drivers the car’s ultimate advantage, it’s fuel efficiency. The Nano will most likely be powered by an 800 cc, 2-cylinder engine with a Garrett turbo charger and common rail direct injection system developed by Bosch. So, if the engine develops around 40-45bhp, this means it will return around 35-40 km per liter of fuel, making it quite an efficient vehicle.

There's a very large gap between a Motorcycle and a SUV.
The Tata "Nano" fits in that gap...close to the Motorcycle.
I've owned and driven a Henry J (2) Honda AN600's A BMW Isetta,
and a large array of motorcycles.
At no time have I ever faulted the vehicles for not being safe....
The Driver/Rider on the other hand... well that's a different story.

Impessive fuel mileage, but doesn't look like it would keep up over here, and you'd be taking your life into your hands. Then again, any driving in India...

I used a calculator... 238 to 272 MPG.

We wouldn't have these kinds of problems had Ronald Reagan not killed funding to the United States Metric Board. Anyway, any industry with a significant amount of international production either does so in metric units or we so command the industry that we can still get by with using SAE.
