1. Least expensive cars: Tata Nano

March 24, 2009

Tata Nano, the much-awaited 'People's Car' from Tata Motors, was launched in Mumbai on March 23, 2009.

The four-door car, Nano has a 623cc engine and a mileage of 23.6 km per litre. It is available in 3 different versions, including one with air-conditioning. Contrary to the criticism it faced pre-launch, Tata Nano meets safety standards and emission laws. As promised by Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata, the base version of the Nano has been priced at Rs 100,000 or about $2,000. This price, however, will be for the first 100,000 cars. Thereafter the price might rise.

But despite this, Tata Nano is the least expensive car in the world.
