2011 Tata Pixel Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

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.

      I'd buy one, Even if the crash test data sucked but passed US specs.

      Am I just delusional or is this design simply the Mitsubishi i-MIEV with butterfly doors?

      Or a Pinanfarina-Bollore Bluecar? Looks ALMOST exactly like a P-F Bluecar!

      The chances of the production car looking as cool as the concept are very slim.

      Great news, get on with it Tata, ahead of the competition.

      If you look at what so far has come out of China's car industry, one can only say that when it comes to styling, Tata are already making great strides here.

      looks interesting but I'd like a model that was lower and longer instead for better aero and speed.
      and electric. and super light. with very narrow wheels.
