New details of the car, including this rendering from Indian mag Overdrive, have now surfaced. According to the source, the car will come with four doors, a rear mounted engine and price tag of just under $3,000. Two engine options will be available, either a twin-cylinder 660cc petrol unit or a more expensive 700cc diesel with common-rail technology and a Bosch developed fuel injection system.
Engineers are reportedly hoping to achieve mileage figures of up to 70mpg (3.33L/100km) and are said to have come close to these levels with prototypes. Initial sales targets for the car are set at 500,000 units for the first year with numbers expected to grow to 1 million units by the end of the third year, and it’s unlikely the car will be sold outside of India.
