World's cheapest car Tata Nano becomes the most expensive mini-car on planet
You've all probably heard of Tata Nano city-car, right? Those who don't know it, this is the world's cheapest car that costs around $2,500. It was launched in India about three years ago with the aim to become the new "people's car".
Just for your information, Tata Nano is considered to be the main competitor of the new Hyundai Eon, which was introduced to you guys yesterday. Read more about new Eon here. Back to Tata Nano...
When Tata announced it aims to build the world's cheapest car, they received plenty of publicity as almost every newspaper and automobile magazine published the story about the carmaker's intentions.
Three years after its official unveiling, Tata drops another news bomb by expanding the Nano range with a very exclusive, and probably a single edition, Nano "GoldPlus" crafted in gold, silver and gemstone.
The jewel encrusted GoldPlus Nano is covered in 80 kilograms of 22 carat gold and 15 kilograms of silver and also features 10.000 semi-precious stones and gems, according to latest reports.
According to Tata, the new version of Nano citi-car is designed to celebrate 5000 years of jewelry making in India.
So, now you know how did the world's cheapest car become the priciest small car in the world! :)
