If there was a car, like the Tata Nano, that was reasonable enough that a family could buy one and use it to run errands around town, and keep it as a second car for those times when only one person was out and about, I think it might sell?

I'm sorry but one of my pet peeves is seeing people driving giant gas guzzlers, not hauling anything or anybody, and they are unnecessaily using up huge amounts of a limited resource? Who knows how much petroleum we realistically have left? "We" meaning the human race.

When I go out I'm always astonished at the huge numbers of cars out on the road driving around. It's mind boggling to me. How in the world can we keep them all supplied with fuel and for how long? It can't last forever and let's face it, sunlight is wonderful but I don't think it can realistically replace oil? It's not dense enough with energy.

What a strange world we live in.
