It is not every day that one gets to witness a crash between Rs 2 lakh and Rs 50 lakh vehicles.
This crash between a Tata Nano and Toyota Fortuner encapsulates some unbelievable results. Nano was officially the cheapest car in the world during its lifetime. Tata Motors launched it back in 2008 to offer people the luxury of owning a car at the price of around Rs 1 lakh at the time. With mild success, it was discontinued in 2019 after poor sales and safety regulations. On the other hand, the Fortuner SUV costs a whopping Rs 50 lakh, ex-showroom and is an accomplished off-roader. Watch what happens when these two ‘meet’.

The results of this minor crash are astonishing, to say the least. The tail end of the Nano is seen bent from one side, the taillamp is broken, the boot lid has suffered a minor dent and there is some impact on the bumper. However, what took everyone by surprise was the sheer damage to the front left section of the mighty Fortuner. The bumper, headlight, bonnet, front grille and side fender have incurred quite heavy damage. It looks like it must’ve hit a brick wall. This is a testament to the strong build quality of Tata products.

As is the case with most accidents, overspeeding and careless driving look like the reasons for this incident. Had the driver of the Fortuner been driving the SUV at a controlled speed, he would’ve been able to apply brakes on time. It is either because of that, or he was not paying attention to the road which is why he didn’t see the Nano slowing down in front of him. We urge our readers to follow traffic regulations and prevent overspeeding at all costs. Do share your thoughts on Tata Nano.
