Tata will stop selling the 'world's cheapest car' (economictimes.com)

The world's cheapest car is a go-kart or ATV or a modified bike even. Due to complex lobbying and regulations, these are not precisely allowed on the road in all US states without some form of harassment.

In addition to that, the greatest danger on the road is other cars. Hence why we have the arms race and proliferation where everyone tries to drive a bigger and heavier car than the next person.

I remember the fanfare and the enthusiasm when this car was launched. Everyone hailed it as the pinnacle of Indian innovation but no one wanted to buy it lest they be seen as "poor" people.
