Tata Motors has reportedly given the Tata Pixel, a microcar concept it just unveiled at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, the production green light. Tata says the pint-sized Pixel, which measures less than 10-feet long, is the "most package-efficient four-seater in the world." For the sake of comparison, the Tata Nano is close to one foot longer than the Pixel.
Autocar reports that the Pixel, once it hits the market with those swinging doors converted to conventional units, will take the place of Tata's proposed Nano Europa, which had been slated for launch this year.
The Pixel will reportedly be powered by the same 60-horsepower, 1.2-liter diesel engine found in the current Nano. The mill will supposedly be mounted under the rear seats and connect to a five-speed gearbox. We suspect that Tata will launch the Pixel in European markets as soon as possible.
