Tata Motors Promises $2500 Car To Rupee-Pinching IndiansS

In a move likely to send jillions of Hindustan Ambassadors edging that much closer to the cruel jaws of The Crusher, Tata Motors of India has announced its plans to build a "1-Lakh Car" for the masses (a Lakh is 100,000 rupees, roughly equivalent to 2,500 US dollars). Other than announcing the price, Tata is playing its cards close to its chest about the details, but we can assume that such features as air conditioning, airbags, and maybe even brakes, will not be available. We'd still rather have a 700,000-mile Amby, thank you.[Washington Post]
