In India, two wheeler is indispensable. In case you own car, do you manage just with car or do you have bike/scooter/cycle to run few errands?

Please vote.

Over here, only car but in India, all my relatives use bike for errands or even bigger tasks. Car is only for moving family together.

I feel there must be car+ bike. esp in chennai and pondicherry.

Pondicherry has worst traffic.
Rto resource say 9000 vehicles are booked in a span of 100 days.

So do the sticker and number plate shop.

Google and see pondicherry space , leave the distant village areas , the main city

If i use car for my daily work ,
for instant a car has come for touch up work at 10 am in morning ,

removing the tank cover a 10 min .
if i take the car , i hope it will take about 1 hr to reach the paint shop. Withing that the paint shop will be full of people and i need to wait in huge ques.By the time i return to workshop it will be noon time i hope.

If its a bike , the whole process will be just a 30 min. where in i use the smallest possible gaps and streets.

The real answer to this question may vary, because the necessity for transportation is one proper vehicle only and rest whatever adds is more or less a luxury. For walk-able distances, using a car or any vehicle for that matter is best avoided, so quite certainly my vote goes to the first option, be it only car or only bike (Depending upon the situation).

No need for cars.

Bikes are enough.

So add another option

Bike only.

This poll for those who own already a car. Poll question is even after owning car do they still need a 2W for running errands (2W for reasons other than sentiments/emotions).
I agree, you can live without a car & also without a bike.

My question in broader context was Nano was launched to that 2W owners move on to 4W. But if people feel they need to have 2W along with 4W for their daily needs, will 2W owners still opt to buy & maintain Nano, along with existing 2W?

I am not looking for real answer. All I want to know is, in case if you own a car, do you also a own and use a 2W?

I would like to know if there that one proper vehicle, if there is any at all.

Many car owners still need a two wheeler for their needs ! How many markets have car parking area? I guess most have 2 wheeler parking space. BTW, the length of 'walk able distance' isn't general.

Nope.

Sure there is, which could either be only car or only bike but depending upon person’s situation, or in other words, it depends whether the buyer in question is an individual, family person, if they require it for long distance travels and many such factors, as stated subsequently.

This can not be commented from other’s viewpoint, but as an individual for me, frankly speaking I’ve never felt a need for a two wheeler, that too in a city like Delhi.

And i would like to add even though a car is suitable for me in a big city like Chennai(not much parking issues) , i still prefer bike if i am travelling alone or only with two.


Yesterday i needed to drop my friend at a place. I took my bike dropped him and came back in 30 mins. If i had taken my car it would have taken atleast 90 mins cause of the traffic!

Nano did a grand total of 506 in Nov 2010 sales. This figure with TATA running exchange scheme for bikes/scooters. Looks like not many want to part with their 2W.
