A new report has just arrived from India, together with a spy shot which might betray the fact that local carmaker Tata is indeed planning to release a pick-up version based on its low-cost Nano model.
Frankly, words betray me at this point, and thoughts like “What’s it going to carry?” are present. But considering the design of the front cabin or the single windshield wiper taken straight from the Nano, it just might come true, courtesy of a few weld spots and a pick-up flat bed.
Indian websites are revealing that the upcoming model, codenamed Penguin, will be powered by a rear-mounted 350cc diesel engine, sending all of its “massive” power directly to the back wheels. Just imagine the burnouts possible with it! (/sarcasm).
But seriously, if this model will come to life, I’m sure it will bring in even more money for Tata, alongside the Nano. What do you think? Leave a comment with your view on this awkward little prototype.
