    Good to see TATA-Bajaj slug out out on the streets of Colombo.

    When will the Delhi CM see the writing on the wall and phase out the Autos from Delhi roads and replace them with Nano Cabs.

    Nana looks much better than Auto-Rickshaws.

    NANO is a perfect solution for Kolkata traffic..

    Though ambassador is best and more comfortable than a benz :), It is !

    But produce lots of smoke and big..

    Couldnt agree any more,.............Ambassador cars for many Indians was a symbol of comfort for the whole family. ;-)

    But ambassadors can carry more weight and Luggage at back unlike the Nano.


    TATA already developing a Cheap Car especially designed for Taxi role. Nano is good, but u cant use them has taxis in India.

    Why i think nanp suit is because mostly in Kolkata metro life one or two mostly rides on taxi most people like bus, Only if i see major use of Ambasador is at airport and railway station, NANO suits that place..

    Though i agree, AC taxis should be ambassadors not TATA Indigo.. :(

    This would be better than Autos the only problem is economy. The car does not give great economy compared to an Auto, until TATA fixes that the 3 wheeled menace is here to stay.

    Diesel model is probably the most economical.

    Why are the Sri Lankan tuk-tuk /rikshaw drivers upset? How come they don't have access to buying Nano's as well? Did that Nano cab company get an exclusive contract? Eventually, more drivers would switch to the Nano over the rickshaw.

    just curious, the posters who are using the word tuk-tuk, where are you from ? because I haven't heard anyone in India use the word tuk-tuk, which seems to be of east asian origin. the only people who use the word tuk-tuk in India are foreign tourists.

    Is your first pic for Ambassador? Is it with 2 doors only? Frankly the design looks archaic

    IT IS!!! A half a century old or more design!! Still in the political circles it's the symbol of power. All present day leaders still use it. Such is the " aura" of the good ol Amby!!

    I think in that video, auto-rickshaws were called as Tuk-tuks. That's what they call them in Sri Lanka as well as many other east asian countries.

    It is the HM Ambassador. It is a 4-door sedan. It is very similar to the British Morris Oxford:

    I am not sure but I don't think they call it tuktuk in sri lanka. the news segment is for western/western educated viewers so the use of tuktuk is understandable. bbc for example says tuktuk when doing a program on India although locals don;t use the term.
