We’ve all done it.  Driven down a narrow road way only to find that there isn’t enough room to turn around and drive out.  The result?  A haphazardous backing out maneuver that could possibly lead to getting your vehicle t-boned upon rentry to a busy street.

The Tata Pixel concept however, can perform a u-turn in as little as 3 meters of radius space.  How?  It sports a prototype transmission called “infinitely variable” that can independently spin each rear wheel in an opposing direction allowing the car to maneuver similar to that of a tank.

The car debuts at the Geneva auto show, but we don’t know when and if it will go on sale.
