Tata Motors have debuted the Tata Pixel – a car which promises to make parking problems a thing of the past – at the Geneva Motor Show 2011.
Best known for creating the world’s cheapest car, the Nano, Tata have chosen to take its compact design and add cutting-edge technological features to create what they claim to be a new city car concept.
One of its most interesting features is the ‘Zero Turn Drive’ – the ability of the two rear wheels to move in opposite directions during low-speed manoeuvres.
This gives the car the ability to turn almost on the spot, making it perfect for city parking in the tightest of spaces.
And unlike a typical city car the Tata Pixel can comfortably sit four adults despite its compact size.
CEO Carl-Peter Forster explained: “Tata Motors holds true to its belief that there is an opportunity in Europe for a city car which is optimal in space, manoeuvrability and environmental-friendliness.
“The Tata Pixel is a reflection of Tata Motors’ idea of what such a car should be.”
The 1.2 litre motor also boasts voice-activated control, a sweeping roof and low CO2 emissions.
