Tata Motors plans to launch 6 utility vehicles across segments to make a strong comeback

Slovakian company Aeromobil has built a two-seater flying car which can take flight from any clear road. The car could go on sale as early as 2017!

We take a look at some salient facts about the flying car. Don't forget to watch a video of the flying car take off and land!.A fully functional prototype of the flying car was revealed in October 2014.
The new multi-modal vehicle prototype was developed and built in 10 months, claims Aeromobil.
Certified by the Slovak Federation of Ultra-Light Flying, the functional prototype has entered a regular flight-testing program.

The Czech-built vehicle can hit over 160 kph on the ground and it flies at 200kph on twin propellers.
The car can land on just 150 feet of grass, and fly for up to 690 kilometres.
It can be used in road traffic anywhere in Europe, and needs just 750 feet of clear road to take off.

The car is equipped with an autopilot - and a parachute for emergencies - and its makers hope it will herald a new age of "door to door" transportation.
Aeromobil also has toughened suspension, so that the car can take off from relatively rough terrain, including paved streets or parkland.
"AeroMobil was designed in a way to fit into existing road infrastructure – its size is comparable to a limousine or a large luxury sedan," says AeroMobil.

It has low maintenance costs and can be parked in regular parking slots in cities, the company says. The car's manufacturers hope it will "change personal transport on a global scale."
"We believe that by 2017 we'll be able to launch this to market," said Juraj Vaculik, CEO of Slovakian company Aeromobil.
However, Vaculik admits there are still some hurdles regarding where the plane is allowed to fly and take off.

The company is yet to confirm a price tag or release date for the vehicle

Twist in Nano : Tata Nano Twist XE to Launch Next Month

Nov 7, AI : On December 2014, the Tata Nano will be available in new trim, the Nano Twist XE. This trim will be the base trim, and the current lower-specced Nano CX and Nano LX trims will be discontinued; the Twist XT trim will be retained.

This means the Tata Nano will now be available in two trims - base Twist XE and top-end Twist XT. This also means that the Tata Nano, henceforth, will be available with power steering in all the variants. 

This is basically a shuffling of the trim levels without too many changes to the car. Cosmetically, this Twist XE trim will have to do with black bumpers and no wheel caps. Good news is, it comes with power steering. The steering wheel is bigger, and there’s also a new instrument cluster that has a trip meter and displays fuel economy, distance to empty, and digital clock. Other features and equipment have been carried over from the current Nano CX trim.

The Tata Nano Twist XE will be available in three colors, silver, gold and white.
