The Tata Magic Iris has been unveiled at the Delhi motor show, and like the Nano it is designed to get people off bikes and into cars.
The five-seater Magic Iris seats two up front and three in the back, and has a 611cc water-cooled diesel engine. It delivers 11bhp - more than the typical three-wheeled motorbike - and has a top speed of 34mph.
Construction is basic: its sheet metal roof, car headlamps and tail lights are all heralded as steps forward in safety over a three-wheel bike. It is available on 12-inch radial or 10-inch crossply tyres.
No prices have been released, but it will go on sale this year and Tata promises it will have a lower maintenance costs and a higher load capacity (and therefore earning potential) than a three-wheeled bike.
