Last month we told you about Tamo, the performance-oriented sub-brand of Tata. Since here in America we mostly only know about Tata in the context of the ultra-cheap Nano, I don’t think anyone took Tamo that seriously. Now Tamo has a car to show, called the RACEMO. Yeah, it’s a dumb name, but there’s even worse words…
Tata is best known globally for their remarkable $3,000 car, the Tata Nano. Tata isn’t crazy about being so synonymous with ultra-cheap cars, which is partially why they’re launching a new performance-oriented sub-brand called Tamo, presumably from Tata Motors. Or maybe Talking Mongoose? It’s not clear. They’ll be…
I have complicated feelings about Elio, the company that’s working to bring a mass-market three-wheel car to American drivers. I love the idea of cheap, three-wheel cars with innovative designs. I also don’t have much confidence in how Elio can accomplish this goal. There is one thing I think Elio could be doing very…
Who will look at poor Tata Kite 5 at the Geneva Motor Show with all those fancy supercars around? We will!
Indian car company Tata decided that it shouldn’t debut its new hatchback named Zica in the midst of the spreading global nightmare that is the Zika virus. Probably a good move.
The standard Tata Nano has a 624 cc two-cylinder producing 37 horsepower. JA Motorsport felt that's not enough, so they jammed a 230 hp 1.3 turbo four in it that revs way above 10,000rpm. Carlo Abarth would certainly approve of India's latest tuner car.
Land Rover already builds LR2s in India using knock-down kits, but parent company Tata will get to second base by developing an entry-level premium SUV for the Indian market using Land Rover's technology.
Tata Motors managing director and former General Motors India president Karl Slym died today after "falling from a high floor" from a Bangkok hotel, according to a report from Reuters. Slym was in southeast Asia after he attended a board meeting of the company's Thailand unit.
The Managing Director of India's Tata Motors, Karl Slym, has been sentenced to six months in jail. The reason? Allegations of failure to repair a faulty Tata Nano.
One of the most striking things an American will notice on India's highways is how almost all their cargo seems to be transported by these lavishly decorated and slightly ramshackle large trucks. They're everywhere, often overloaded to twice their normal height, and barrelling down the road with a gleeful disregard…
I know that's a bold statement to make in that headline there, but I mean it. I should clarify though— "interesting" does not mean "best" in any sense of the word. It's not the fastest, most advanced, most comfortable, or really any superlative (other than maybe "cheapest"). But some of the cars that are currently…
The 37 horsepower Tata Nano is not exactly what you would call luxurious. But as the cheapest car in the world, it is the ride that Ratan Tata envisioned would get the majority of India on the roads.
Indian car magnate Rajan Tata says instead of shipping the $2,000 Nano to the United States, he'll design a U.S. model that will likely cost between $7,000 and $8,000. Watch out, sellers of used PT Cruisers.
The Tata Nano, the cheapest car in the world, is awash in bad press after four brand-new cars have caught fire in India. Is Tata about to become the Indian Toyota?
We're convinced BusinessWeek intentionally created its "Fifty Ugliest Cars of the Past 50 Years" list to offend Jalopnik reader sensibilities as much as possible. We've pulled out ten cars that simply have no place on this list. Two-minutes hate ahead.
