    The tree huggers are already crying...cars shouldn't be so cheap; now everyone's gonna be able to afford them.

    I'm sure it doesn't meet US standards. Air bags and TPMS would account for half the price of the car.

    You are correct. It does NOT meet US emissions standards

    heard about this on the radio this morning.....they went on for 10 mins about other nice "tatas"

    you have to give them credit though....they just created a MASSIVE market for themselves, being the first to offer such a cheap car

    Re: $2500 car - Tata Motors India

    So, from an insurance standpoint would the car be totaled if you got a flat tire?

    only if the tire cost more than the car. they don't total your bike if you get a flat.

    bet you can't get speeding ticket with one of these.

    purpose is not a fun car but good enough to get to work.

    I think there is definately a place for these. When I was in Italy, (and Ireland/IOM last year), I saw a ton of the Smart Cars....they are really great. I would love to have one for the short trips to town, etc.

    Re: $2500 car - Tata Motors India

    I love the idea of those cars for the younger drivers. 16 years old, old enough to need a vehicle to go to College, but many not responsible enough yet to drive safely or not enough experience behind the wheel. Speed limited at 65 mph, very economic to maintain. Kinda like starting small with a motorcycle and upgrading as you get out of the newbie stage... That white one posted above is actually pretty cute.

    so what, motorcycles have higher emmissions than most cars


    My understanding is tha Tata Motors is also in the process of purchasing Jaguar & Land Rover from Ford Motor Company

    Smart ForTwo's will be coming to the US via Chrysler, although Zapp is selling them in limited numbers already over here. What I want is a Smart Roadster, Braubus Edition.

    Hell with gas being as expensive as it is i would totally buy one of these for commuting and little errands. Then just use my truck when i need it. Just think of all the gas money you could save for a better race bike. Iwould love to open up a dealership here in the states selling these things. Seriously this is the future of carsSeriously this is the future of cars!.

    I saw the Volt concept, very very slick looking.

    I could also get used to seeing this on my dash
