A company in India has unveiled the world's cheapest car. The Tata Nano will go on sale next month for the low-low price of $1,979. Right now millions of Indians ride inexpensive motorcycles. But with five seats, the Nano could be an affordable way to transport families.
For less than $2,000, drivers won't get air bags, air conditioning, a radio, or power steering. Still, environmental activists worry that the no-frills car will be popular, thus adding to car traffic and pollution.
A European version of the Nano will hit that market in 2011, for about $5,700. Are you happy to see cars go cheap, or do you worry about the environmental impact?
