World's Cheapest Car Coming To U.S.

World's Cheapest Car Coming To U.S., The Tata Nano has a $3,500 base price in India, but expect to pay more here. Tata bringing world's cheapest car to the U.S., Americans will soon get the chance to buy what is generally considered the world's most inexpensive automobile. But considering the safety problems experienced by the little Tata Nano - which has received only a mixed reception in its home Indian market - it's anyone's guess whether U.S. motorists will say yes or no-no to the microcar.

The Nano is the work of Tata, one of India's biggest industrial conglomerates and parent to a carmaking division with aggressive global aspirations. Along with the homegrown Tata brand it also owns both the British Jaguar and Land Rover marques.

There's no confusing their products, however. The original Tata Nano is a step up from a motor scooter, with only the most minimal creature comforts and a severe lacking of safety features, as well, according to critics.

The U.S. version will have to meet federal laws, of course, which would mandate the addition of such niceties as airbags and electronic stability control. And the engine may get a little boost from the basic 37 horsepower that it makes in India.
