Here’s the skinny on the tiny: Tata of India has confirmed that they’ll bring over their pint-sized wonder in around 2 years, according to a report by one of their US spokespersons. Of course, this raises a host of questions. For one, what American can actually fit inside one? Can it swim through shallow mud puddles? Will it come with fine Corinthian leather? Details, details.
What we do know is that Tata is promising it will meet all crash and emissions standards for the US, a seemingly tall order for a car built to be as cheap as possible. Plus there are rumors (take with a grain of salt, naturally) of diesel and electric versions making the rounds. In any event, if you want a car so cheap that it makes a Chevy Aveo look like a Bentley, then wait 24 months and save your nickels.
