Small Cars – India’s TATA Nano

– March 2, 2009 – BigFurHat – 46 Comments

India’s concept car is finally here! And it’s aptly named The TATA Nano. Especially if your name happens to be Nano. The proud makers of the Tata Nano boast that the car has no welding, it is actually glued together! Seriously, just like the planes you used to make with the rubber band propellers, which came apart at impact with a couch pillow.

 

The Tata Nano has upped the ante on the global race to develop the world’s smallest and most affordable cars. The following is a list of cars around the globe that are either in the market now, or will be released by early summer 2009.

Italy:  The Arrivederci Thoma –  At $1900, this car is actually cheaper than a casket, which is a fair market price considering the Arrivederci is made entirely of *wood. (*Construction Grade Balsa.)

France:  The Au Revoir Philippe – Solid cheese construction. Our road tests showed that this auto is classically French, going from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, in reverse.

Cuba:  The Adios Amigos –  Many were surprised to learn, considering it’s $1400 sticker price, that the Adios is entirely handmade, just like a $250,000 Rolls Royce. Turns out the Adios is actually made of hands. Avoid this vehicle.

Japan: The Banzai – already known for their small cars, the Banzai is definitely the smallest in Japan. The makers of the Banzai guarantee that you will only use one tank of gas for as long as you own the car. Actually, the exact wording in their ad is “The Banzai! You will only GET to use one tank of gas for as long as you own this car.” It also comes with a lifetime warrantee!

Israel – Shalom Shlomo – Nicknamed “The Fishbowl.” The Israelis have perhaps gone too far in terms of safety, the entire car, including the seats, steering wheel, engine, everything, is constructed of safety glass. *Tip – for only $200, upgrade to the tinted Shalom, you’ll thank us when you’re stuck out in the desert heat.

Frankly, this race to see who can develop the smallest most affordable car is getting tiresome. This is becoming like a silent auction, each person bidding in tiny increments. Well, our engineers here at iOWNtheWorld.com have said, “ENOUGH!” Like insanely out-bidding everyone for that lunch date with Gallagher, we have decided to construct, without a doubt, the world’s smallest and cheapest automobile (as long as automobile is defined as something that moves automatically.)

We, today, unveil the SeeYa Ernie.

We have saved a tremendous amount of money on our outer body construction, by eliminating it entirely. This is just one of the innovative ideas that help pass tremendous savings to our customers.

The SeeYa Ernie (the Seeya was named “Ernie” in tribute to our messenger guy, who we paid 20 bucks to test drive the automobile) base model is constructed on a National Wholesale Liquidator office chair chassis, and is powered by a very earth friendly engine. Gravity. The SeeYa Ernie GT (model pictured) is retrofitted with a Tecumseh 850, 2 stroke (well, 3, if you count your own) mini bike engine. This clever use of gravity and gas makes this beast (which can attain speeds of 135 mph (downhill) and about 26 mph uphill (your results may vary depending on your weight… and the size of the hill) every bit as fuel efficient as the Prius.

As you can see in the photo, the SeeYa Ernie comes with a navigational system, no opinion steering, front brakes, 4 wheel drive, air conditioning, upper body restraint, and a *safety airbag. (*Driver must collide with an airbag.) It also had a cup holder, until Ernie dropped his coffee.

We offer these, by special order only, for an astonishing low cost of $299.04 – less tax, dealer prep, destination charge, undercoating and death certificate.

Special note: Ernie’s family has asked for donations to iOwnTheWorld.com in lieu of flowers. You can make these donations through paypal on our homepage. No, seriously, donate.

    How dumb can anyone get. I understand because of superiority complex you guys have. You think that since car is “glued” togather, it will break into pieces. Tata’s have used a new technology of glueing metal borrowed from TIFR (Tata institute of fundamental Research) which works along with Indian Space Research Organisation. I guess the same technique is used in building rocket that launch satellites. Nano is designed for Indian Roads. No way they could risk for an option that is leave a chance that would break into pieces. I guess this forum is visited by bunch of most dumb technophobic people on planet.

    Are you seriously trying to equate that tiny piece of shit with rocket science?
    Yes, Nasa uses non welds, but the rockets aren’t designed for IMPACT!!!!!!!!!

    Your TATA will end up in the wheel well of a 16 wheeler and no one will find you until he goes in for brake inspection.
    I guess your’re a proud TaTA owner- AKA: rickshaw de elegance. Good for you. In America these crap buckets can be stored in our trunks for use at the golf course. They certainly will not inspire much confidence on a highway surrounded by tractor trailers. Please. We value are lives too much to trade in our cars for plastic covered tricycles.

    Nano is not designed for the “Most developed Nation” of the world. We at developing nations would like to have choice like Nano to travel short distances in city streets and not long haul journeys on express ways. For that we do have appropriate cars. You guys drive 6 cylinder cars around to get a loaf of bread. I feel that is really really stupid and wastage of non-renewable resources like gas. Doesn’t matter much to me actually what you think about it. As our world economy is going in recession, it not always to good idea to blow trumphets about things we use are superior than we others. Tommorow you may end with the inferior one. Just look at the committement of an organisation that takes up challenge to challenge the impossible. So many people can use this car not just in India but other developing nations to travel around by more safer means may be not safest.

    Just a last word… How can you build so much speculations when no one has even test drove Nano. Nano is not yet launched. I guess, march end they would start delivering Nano to their customers. There are way lot of people who want to TEST this small car and give reviews. We’ll see then wheather nano is road worthy for the purpose it is designed for…

I should agree to this to some extent after reading posts of Cheryl who cannot think outside of whats between her legs. “Cheryl” word should be the synonym of “dumbest person on earth”. Cool down guys… I am saying this because her judgment says that this vehicle will be hunkered down with more than one loaf of bread. But doesn’t realize above pic is of nano driving 6 feet tall person weighing atleast 90kg.

    I guess I am becoming too critical about your opinion on this whole “Small Car” thing. Sorry guys… I understand this is natural as the way nano has drawn attention of people all round the world, no other car has drawn such attention ever, and not even a car of “worlds most developed countries”. So its obvious human nature to feel jealous about it and try to malign all the things that can be said about this car. Dont you think India has been making news quiet often nowadays. I would suggest you guys to make habit of making some space for India amongst yourself now. India is rocking…

    so, let them have their Tatas… see how well they drive on non-paved roads where the right-of-way goes to the biggest elephant.

    Reeko. We do would like to have our Tata’s. Why not as Jaguar and Land Rover are also “TATA’s”. Hope you are keeping yourself updated with developments happening around the world. If not, then you should as you sound really stupid not knowing who are Tata’s. I wonder how difficult you are making your life by keeping this arrogance when you dont know how to manage your companies and business. Just have a look to what has happened to your “BIG” three auto companies. They are in a MESS. Above that you go ‘ga ga’ over your cars. Hold on, I guess I am expecting too much from you people. You guys need to call for “Tech support” even if your monitor power cord is not connected. THAT IS REALLY STUPID. A rural guy from India if works on computer for atleast a month, would be able to identify this problem and fix it himself. I am told this is Humor site. I see bunch of morons who are about to loose their jobs and suffer from superiority complex. Just dont forget we are also as capable as you are or rather more. Difference is that your fore fathers have really worked hard and its because of them you are what you are today. May be our fore fathers have not worked that hard but we are catching up…

    It’s amazing how other countries believe that America is just completely filled with DUMB people.
    That must really irritate them to think that the dumbest country is the world dominator.
    It must also irritate them to know that more than half the country is smart enough to know what a danger Obama is.
    If this was truly a “DUMB” country Obama would be president for life, we would have a royal family, and we’d all be driving Tatas.

I had build this perception actually by reading all comments on this thread. Not all America is blogging on this site. But dumb americans may be. America is not a country “only with” dumb people, I agree. But the writer of this thread and people commenting on this thread look dumb and that made be build that imperssion. Exception is you I think. Your comments are sensible. I must admit, I would enjoy kicking more a** of people like red star, cheryl, armani, etc. if they would post some more dumb comments which do not have respect for others.

    Tatas are very important to me! I just had mine done…a little nip here, a tuck there and I’m ready to “get it on”.

    Do you listen to my radio show? Maybe you can be a guest and we’ll talk progressive stuff…like saving the planet, buying loaves of bread at Panera, driving a Nano Nano, and playing with my new tatas?

I would definately contribute for saving YOUR Tata’s if needed, as I can understand how they may be roughly used. I hope you know the meaning of your name ‘Randi’ in hindi. If not google for ‘meaning of randi in hindi’. Also dont expect me to have my hands on your Tata’s. I dont use second hand Tata’s that need ‘a little nip here, a tuck there’ to be presentable. Dont feel bad about my comments, I am just an ordinary guy from an ordinary country that is trying to show the thrid prespective of you guys which is very much undeniable. Just wait and watch as the world is changing from ordinary to extra ordinary.

    Maybe this thing will be just as good as other cars costing between 2000-4000 Capitalist Exploitation Units like the Yugo! Perhaps they will start blowing up as well. I searched for crash test pictures and they pretty much throw pieces in every direction after the slightest impact. Part of the steering wheel column imbedded itself in the dummy’s leg. Perhaps this will assist with population control…

    I was signaling to make a left and it was sheered off by an outdoor cafe umbrella. (My “no opinion” steering navigated me onto the sidewalk.)
    Ironically, I had it sewed back on by an Indian doctor. He asked me if I wanted to but his second hand Tata.
    I was a little woosy from anesthesia, so I said yes.

    I am not into “The Rough Trade”. I like mine gently stroked with a counter clockwise finger swirl. I don’t know how you men do things in India, but I don’t like my tatas slapped around. If you like that kind of stuff, check the personal ads for any San Francisco newspaper. I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for in tata rough trade.
    As for Randi in Hindi, yes, I know…but for you, I’ll give a special discount but you must promise no tata abuse and listen to my radio show.

    Hey Randi,
    You are taking me in a wrong way. When I meant ‘roughly’, i actually meant many many people using it and not what you think of slapping around. I would never do that as I admire them and would respectfully play with nature’s best things. Anyways, dont feel bad about the ‘hindi meaning’ as I just wanted to show that everybody’s name may have bad/ugly meanings in different languages as you compared mine with star wars. So dont mind about that.

    I guess you want more people to listen to your radio show… As I am from India, I dont think my FM(radio) receiver can receive your radio station of america. Now dont tell me that you didn’t knew this, Please…. If you do, you make my belief more strong that most americans are really dumb people. Again…

  4. From wikipeda:
    The Nano was initially launched with a price of one lakh rupees or ₹100,000 (US$1,600),[4] which has increased with time. Designed to lure India’s burgeoning middle classes away from motorcycles, it received much publicity, but the sales expectations were not met. Multiple issues like factory relocation from Singur, instances of Nano catching fire , and the perception of Nano being unsafe and lacking quality due to cost cutting led to the decline of sales volume. As compared to Tata Motor’s aspiration of 250000 unit sales annually at the time of launch, sales in FY 2016-17 was 7591 units only.

  10. I got laid-off from a dying start-up and they called it “Misconduct” so as not to have to pay unemployment around ’13 and one of the reps had turned me on to BFH. Never felt intimidated. I went on to win a piece of Fur art – a Molon Labe tote bag where my Colt proudly resides!!

    I want to know if the safety glass on the Shalom Shlomo will protect you from camel kicks in heavy traffic.

  12. I came here ages ago (or it seems that long ago) from TPC. Right after you started this, whenever that was. By the way, what day is this?

    Until IOTW, I had never heard the term “yambag.” It still cracks me up.

  15. This is great! Our own IOTW wayback machine!

    Looking back on the embarrassingly high percentage of lame posts that I have made here it is hard to imagine anyone being too intimidated to comment.

    I’ve stuck with the name Uncle Al except for a brief spell when I used Ebony Bandera. I got over that fairly quickly. Nobody even hinted that they got the joke.
