Tata Nano: The cheapest car in the world

The Indian company Tata Motors has released a completely new ultra cheap car Tata Nano. Its total price is $ 2500, which is half of its nearest competitor - Maruti 800.

Tato Nano is 4 doors economy-class car, with petrol engine of 324 cubes volume, 33 hp. Fuel consumption for 100 km is only 4.3 liters. Promised maximum speed of 60 miles per hour (about 97 km / h).

According to Tata Motors, 5 people will fit quite comfortable into the car. I rather think that there is no way to fit even four people. Even though the base Tata Nano doesn't include air conditioner, tilting seats and even radio, it still remains a very cheap car.

Sales of Tata Nano will begin in the second half of this year. Regarding the volume of sales, the Tata Motors plans to reach 500000 vehicles a year.
