The Tata Nano is a city car manufactured by Tata Motors. Made and sold in India, the Nano is the cheapest car in the world today. Before it went on sale, a price of 1 lakh (US$1,800) was widely touted. Since its 2009 debut, the price has increased; while the Nano remains the lowest-cost four-wheeled passenger vehicle in India, it is significantly more expensive than a motorcycle, a popular means of cheap transport in the country.
After having successfully launched the low cost Tata Ace truck in 2005, Tata Motors began development of an affordable car that would appeal to the many Indians who drive motorcycles. The purchase price of this no frills auto was brought down by dispensing with most nonessential features, reducing the amount of steel used in its construction, and relying on low cost Indian labor.
Announced as the least expensive production car in the world, Tata aimed for a price of one lakh rupees, or 100,000, which was approximately $2,000 US at the time. Only the very first customers were able to purchase the car at that price, however, and, as of 2012, the price for the basic Nano is around 150,000. Increasing material costs may be to blame for this rapid rise in price.
Compared to the Volkswagen Beetle it has a relatively low price, however. In 1990, a Beetle from Mexican factories was priced at $5,300, about $9,428 in today's money. The Ford Model T's initial price was about $850, equivalent to $21,987 today.
