Tata Motors, which owns Jaguar Land Rover and manufactures the Nano (the world’s cheapest car), has rolled out its Pixel Concept urban car at the Geneva Motor Show.
Tata says the Pixel is 10 feet long, “comfortably accommodates four adults.” Its doors open up, rather than out, to avoid cyclists, pedestrians or approaching traffic.
The Pixel has a “Zero Turn toroidal traction-drive Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT).” It can rotate one rear wheel forward and the other backward. As such, it has a turning circle of only 8.5 feet.
The engine is a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder diesel. With its low aerodynamic drag, engine start-stop, low rolling-resistance tires and other fuel efficiency technologies, the Pixel will average an estimated 69 mpg.
