This green Tata Nano was sighted near the Seremban toll by reader Suthesh Kumar Balbir Singh. We wonder how a registered Tata Nano ended up here in Malaysia. Is someone planning to bring Tata passenger cars in? DRB-HICOM currently has a collaboration with Tata Motors via their wholly-owned unit USF-HICOM, but it’s for CBU and CKD Tata commercial vehicles. There has been no mention of passenger vehicles so far.

The Tata Nano’s two-cylinder 624cc engine is mounted at the rear and drives the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox. It produces 38 PS and 51 Nm of torque. Official top speed is 105km/h, so you pretty much have to go full speed on highways. RM15k new car anyone?
