Tata Nano – the car has been in the constant news either for its ultra-cheap price, petit model or the back-to-back fire incidents that gutted the vehicle more recently. Prima facie, Nano has its value deeply rooted in terms of innovation to match its economical needs.
So, would you like to go for a long drive in this small car within the comforts of its air condition or with the whiff of a fresh air blowing all over your smiling face? :D
This vehicle which is termed as a people’s car, could offer you a jazzy ride by going topless. A latest buzzing news is that auto major Tata could as well be planning to introduce the convertible version of Nano. The report says that topless Nano was spotted ferrying visitors inside the new Sanand factory in Gujarat.
One aspect that the auto major may have to determine is testing of the operational feasibility of its light-weighted vehicle and its integrity related issues. The convertible Nano may offer style to the vehicle but its safety standards may be put to test.
The company may have to evolve a unique safety standard in convertible cars to shield the passengers in case the car gets rolled-over. Also, it might not be of safest prospects to tweak the structural rigidity of this light-weight model by going for convertible roof.
A topless Nano might sounds frenzied to the youth genre, but it is more preferable a modification for a sports car with two-seater capacity rather than a family car.
The architecture also needs a close look where a convertible car must have a limited amount of open and closing space for better maneuverability. If the top begins to wear down at higher speeds, it might affect the aerodynamics of the vehicle.
What’s your view on this frenzied model?
