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 is on display, along with diagrams and a short film describing its concept, development and production.
This installation is the third in a series of "Quicktake" installations aimed at showing the public vital up-and-coming design from around the world.
