India’s Tata Motors has unveiled the world’s cheapest car on January 10th at New Delhi. The vehicle, called the Tata Nano, will sell for 100,000 rupees (USD2,500).
Company chairman Ratan Tata said that Nano is “a safe, affordable and all weather transport; a people’s car designed to meet all safety standards and emissions laws and accessible to all.”
Some environmentalist, as expected, are concerned that the car will lead to more air pollution from traffic congestions. Sounds true, but who are us to deny others the leisure to own their cars when we are driving one of our own? I bet that most of those environmental critics are car owners too.
