World's Cheapest Car

Post by SamCogar on Tue Mar 24, 2009 11:19 am

MUMBAI, India The Nano, a pint-sized $2,000 car designed to put car ownership within reach of millions of the world's poor, will hit India's congested streets in July, Tata Motors officials said Monday.

The Nano, starting at about 100,000 rupees ($1,980), is a stripped-down car for stripped-down times: It is 10.2 feet (3.1 meters) long, has one windshield wiper, a 623cc rear engine, and a diminutive trunk.

The four-seater can travel up to 65 miles an hour (105 kilometers an hour) and gets 55.5 miles to the gallon (23.6 kilometers per liter). The Nano does not have air bags or antilock brakes neither of which is required in India and if you want air conditioning or power windows, you'll have to pay extra.

Tata said the car emits less carbon dioxide than most motorbikes.
