Diego likes the populist design approach but not styling itself. Here’s what he has to say: “That swoopy windshield is a hollow attempt at style over substance: who needs an expensive, complex, Le Mans-quality aerodynamic solution when one’s top speed (let alone average speed) is so low? Something more planar would be simpler, cheaper, and easier to fix and replace over the life of the car.”
He also wonders about the impact of another high-volume car on India and the world but says that if we must have one, the small mass and form of the Nano are big pluses.
