Tata Nano receives international design award



Tata Motors today said its small car, Nano, has received the good design award for 2010, from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design with the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.

The award for Nano has come in the category of transportation, Tata Motors said in a statement. The design is such that it offers incredibly spacious passenger compartment, which can comfortably seat four adults.

With a length of just 3.1 metre, width of 1.5 metre and height of 1.6 metre, Nano has the smallest exterior footprint for a car in India but is 21 per cent more spacious than the smallest car available today, it said.

Tata Motors recently announced a special finance scheme by which a customer will get within 48 hours, a loan for the Nano.
