We really like small and cheap cars and they don't get much cheaper than India's new small car the Tata Nano.

Indian car manufacturer TATA has just unveiled their new model to be known as the Nano. The 600cc microcar has gained the auto world spotlight since TATA released the details that the starting price will be the equivalent of US$2500. TATA intends to sell the car in India to middle class Indians who previously could not afford a new car. Environmentalist do-gooders have caned the car, complaining that India's roads are already overcrowded and this car is going to make things worse. Check out the launch video above to see what 2500 bucks can get you.
