TTAC's Samir Syed has already discussed the revolutionary nature of Tata's new Nano. Just-auto [sub] reports that Automotive News Europe [sub] is reporting that Tata Motors is looking to spread the love. At the new car's launch, Tata Motors' group chairman Ratan Tata said his company will export their "people's car" into the Eurozone. Eventually. Tata will restrict Nano sales to India for the first two years– or more– before starting exports. To Africa, Latin America and southeast Asia. After that, they'll shoehorn in some bigger engines (the base Nano has a 33hp 624cc two-cylinder powerplant) and add some more "advanced features." Hang on. Can the new "people's car" meet strict European emissions and safety regulations? "When we go to Europe, we will conform to all existing regulations," insisted Girish Wagh, head of the 500-member Nano product development team. Responding to a question, he added" "Yes, I said when."
