One of our Motoreps, Satyen Poojari, has caught the Iris mini-van on test! As you can see, its the same as the production prototype that was displayed at the Auto Expo in January. The Iris is based on the Nano platform and is targeted towards the entry level people-carrier segment. Tiny radio cabs anyone?

Apart from the Iris, the Tata Nano has also spawned another commercial vehicle – the Penguin (codename). Like the Iris, the Penguin too will be powered by the 624cc engine form Nano. The Penguin is an entry-level pick-up truck as you can see in the video below. Interestingly enough, you can see a Piaggio pick-up pulling a defunct Penguin!
