Launch of “Small Wonder: The Making of the Nano”
The famous Rs. 1-lakh car, the Nano, was at Vivanta by Taj Connemara for the launch of, essentially, its life story. Small Wonder: The Making of the Nano tells the tale of how the world's cheapest car came to be, from the birth of the idea in 2003 to its high-profile roll out in 2009.
“It's about how a group of very committed people at Tata Motors turned the dream of Ratan Tata into a reality,” said Christabelle Noronha, one of the three authors of the book, at the launch.
The book details the unusual challenges the Nano team faced — economic, technological and logistical — and gives you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the way the concept of the car evolved from a glorified three-wheeler to a fully-outfitted, stylish car.
