Talking to private television networks Khattar said the car's performance on Indian roads would eventually tell the truth about the claims that are being made by the manufacturer.

" It is a good car but we need to test it," he said. When asked how an air conditioned car could have so low a price tag, Khattar said, "Only the Tata's can explain how they managed to achieve it."
