    I just realized there wasn't yet a thread for this car. Yet, it could arguably be one of the most promising vehicles out there in terms of cost and performance. The electric drivetrain from TM4 is also interesting and worth a look.

    Tata Motors Indica 1.4 GLX First Drive.*

    Edmunds reviewed the bifuel version. They were not kind, to say the least.

    "The 2008 Tata Indica is simply not a nice car to drive...About the best that can be said of the Indica is that it's cheap. Then again, so is a bicycle."

    If one of these Chinese or Indian cars make it to market, it'll end up like another commuta car.

    I'm always suspicious when a manufacturer doesn't quote 0-60, but still sounds promising.
