Behind the Scenes of Quicktake: Tata Nano

On February 16th the smiling Tata Nano rolled through the front doors of Cooper-Hewitt, up the stairs and settled on a platform in the Great Hall. 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 $2,500 in India and can accommodate up to five adults. A bright, sunshine yellow Nano will be on display, along with diagrams and photos illustrating its concept, development and production, until April 25, 2010.
