(Reuters) - Following are some details on Tata Motors’ ‘People’s Car’, the four-door Nano, which will be the world’s cheapest car with a dealer price of 100,000 rupees ($2,500).
* Length: 3.1 meters
* Height: 1.6 meters
* Width: 1.5 meters
* Engine: Rear-wheel drive, 2-cylinder, 623 cc, multi-point fuel-injection petrol engine. Engine is rear mounted. Tata said it was the first time a 2-cylinder gasoline engine was being used in a car with single balancer shaft.
* Safety: Tata said the Nano has an all sheet-metal body, with safety features such as crumple zones, intrusion-resistant doors, seat-belts, strong seats and anchorages, and the rear tailgate glass bonded to the body. Tires are tubeless.
