India's answer to the Volkswagen.

Introducing the Tata Nano, a cute, smartly designed $2500 car made for the masses. Four door, five seat hatchback. Reaches speeds up to 65 mph.

Oh, and it also gets 55 miles to the gallon.

Despite its relative smallness, the Nano has passed initial crash tests, and is designed to pass further impact testing under European standards.

Sounds like an environmentalist's wet dream? Not quite.  Environmentalists are concerned about every family in the third world owning one of these in the future, and of the impact of having so many new vehicles out there.
