    Aw, gee. I thought from the thread title it really WAS made of recycled cardboard. Wasted 10 minutes scanning articles and Googling to find out.

    Got me on that one.

    Well, Tata Nano was written off by all the industry pundits everywhere even before Tata came up with its name. But it did happen.

    So don't laugh it off so soon. Engineering is a field that doesn't stay at one place.

    Ain't NO freaking way I will buy a car that small. I drive a highway everday with nothing but 18 wheelers. If I got hit in something like that, the 18 wheeler would not even feel like it ran over a speed bump.

    Instead of those battery operated kiddie cars that parents buy their toddlers, I'm thinking of maybe buying a Tata for my grandkids to drive up and down the driveway, it's about the same size.

    Saw a "Smart Car" on the freeway last week. I did a double take because it looked like a toy - the lady driving gave me a smug look. Sent me off on a rant to the guy driving for an hour or more. LOL

    People who buy these "mini cars" to preserve the environment make me laugh - their lives are in danger. Guess the environment is more important?
    Peace,

    And that...is the master plan. Once they are eliminated, there will be more of everything for the rest of us. Bwhahahaha!

    They certainly don't make sense on U.S. highways! They were developed for India, where local driving is a high adventure: http://www.time.com/time/world/artic...576101,00.html
    In India and Bangladesh, turn signals and rear mirrors are for sissies. Drivers are responsible for what's ahead of them, not what's behind. Many studiously ignore vehicles not in their direct line of vision, meaning the horn is the only way to make your presence known. So drivers use it. Always.
    In smaller suburbs & towns, these cars would be great for trips to local stores. And as self-enclosed communities are being built, especially for seniors, the need to venture outside of your community to see a doctor, enjoy entertainment or buy a few groceries is being reduced. These would be perfect and very affordable for seniors on a tight budget. However, G-d forbid they take them out on highways.
