NEW YORK, NY.- The ‘Tata Nano’, designed to be the
world’s most affordable car, will be on view at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design
Museum from Feb. 18 through April 25, 2010.
Unveiled last year in India
by Tata Motors, India’s largest automobile manufacturer, the Tata Nano is
targeted to families who had not previously been able to afford a car.
Billed as “the people’s car,” the base model starts at $2,200 in India
and can accommodate up to five adults.
A bright, sunshine yellow Nano
will be on display in Cooper-Hewitt’s Great Hall, along with diagrams and a
short film describing its concept, development and production.
