Tata Motors will launch a production version of the Pixel

According to Autocar, Tata Motors will launch a production version of the Pixel car. The new model will arrive as soon as some changes are made concerning its futuristic design, when engineers manage to replace them with more traditional ones.
Chairman Ratan Tata says this car will be the most efficient four-seater in the world. It has a 1.2-liter three-cylinder diesel engine, churning out in the region of 60 hp.
Under the rear seat, the powerplant is mounted and drives the back wheels using a five-speed gearbox. The Tata Pixel returns a fuel economy of 3.4 l/100km (69 mpg) and CO2 emissions of just 89 g/km on the combined cycle with optimized aerodynamic drag, low rolling-resistance tires, stop-start technology and battery charging.
Tata also said that there have been problems with the Nano, but it probably needs a different marketing approach.
