$2500 car inches closer to production – cheap cheerful and…well cheap

2500dollarcar

Indian car maker Tata is apparently on course to start production of the world’s cheapest car by the middle of this year. The PR machine may be in full swing, but it’s interesting to note that the management are now saying that the 70 mpg vehicle may end up costing more than $2500.00 when it arrives, dependent on commodity prices and the level of some Indian ‘government incentives’, which is a whole ball of wax on its own. The thing has already gone up $500 since it was originally announced back in 2003, so let’s see how things pan out eh? More here.

 Mashelkar also put to rest questions on how spacious the car would be, explaining that there was ample space in both the front and the rear to fit his six-foot frame. “In a bid to reduce weight of the car, Tata Motors’ engineers have used more plastics. The car does not use too many bolts which also helps in reducing weight. Instead, it’s all a new kind of welding,” he was quoted as saying.

  • The only issue I have it the design why do people copy the design of Chevy Joy? What happened to innovation?

    • i like this car s guud car

  • Um – I’m pretty sure Chevvy bought that shape, lock, stock and generic small car barrel, from the Far East

  • Isn’t this the company buying Jaguar? Worlds apart.

  • We should of course be grateful to Tata. If this was the 50’s we’d be seeing much larger cars. As in post war United States.
