TaTa Motors in India have announced the soon to be launched Nano, a car which will sell starting at $2,000.00 USD. This, they say will enable people from India to finally afford 'cars' instead of little motorbikes and mopeds and will revolutionise transportation in the growing, huge country of India.
The car looks somewhat like a Smartcar, but with much smaller tires.
Not a bad little car compared with what they have already over there. This will be good for them.
In Japan and France, such a car is called a MicroCar class, which like in Japan, is sold to minors and teens. Honda and others make 'Microcars' which the rest of the world rarely see.
