The world’s cheapest automobile is now one step closer to conquering Europe, North America and the rest of the world. This morning, British magazine Autocar is reporting that the Tata Nano meets the European New Car Assessment Program’s (EuroNCAP) front and side crash tests standards.
Since its unveiling, the fascinating pint-sized machine has come under scrutiny for safety due to its low cost (US$2,500), general lack of safety equipment. There’s also the issue that it’s currently only sold in India, a country whose crash test standards are considerably more lax than those of North America.
