Tata Motors Bringing Nano Minicar Stateside

Move over Fiat and Smart, the world’s most affordable small car is coming to America. This cute little 37-hp bugger is the product of Indian-based automaker Tata Motors, who, after success of a their extremely low cost Ace pickup, graced the Indian motorways with an even smaller and more affordable vehicle. With a thrifty price tag of only $1,900, this is officially the cheapest car in the world, and although we will see a bump in price when it hits U.S. shores, it should still be one of the most affordable cars in all of North America.

While the Tata Motor group has not yet gained a foothold in the U.S. market, means of distribution would be all to easy thanks to the newfound ownership of Jaguar/Land Rover.
