Production for world's cheapest car ends

By Faiming_low on 13 Jul 2018 in Other News

Attached Image Tata Motors has apparently stopped production of its Nano which made headlines a decade ago as the world’s cheapest new car.

As reported by India Economic Times, Tata Motors built just one unit in June, a substantial decrease from the 275 made in the same month last year.

Back in 2008, the car was launched with much interest as the 'people's car' by being extremely value for money. However, despite the Indian market being value-focused, sales failed to take off.

The car is powered by a naturally-aspirated 0.6-litre two-cylinder petrol engine that made 37bhp and 51Nm of torque. Top speed is rated at 105km/h. Later, higher end versions came with option of an automated manual transmission and the price of the car increased to a starting price of S$4,700.
