Once again the little car will not be offered in the United States but is destined for third world developing countries. Another words I'll never have a chance to buy it.

From the article it's sounding like to me that they are still fighting within the company whether they should even make the car with a lot of Nissan exectutives saying it diverts scarce resources from more established markets.

The cheapest car in North America that Nissan offers is an $8,000 model in Mexico. I'm afraid that will be what happens with this car if it ever makes it to our shores.

Tata Nano from India is still in the works to be sold in the U.S. but because they have to comply with U.S. emission and safety laws it won't be anywhere near the $2,500 dollar price tag it costs in India. I'm betting if it is sold here at all it will be closer to $8,000 by the time our Federal government gets ahold of it.
