most affordable cars

The Tara Tiny was reported as the world’s cheapest car, replacing former cheapest car Tata Nano. The Tiny, an electric vehicle, has a 22 volt motor and travels between 80 to 100 kilometers with just one 8 hour charge.

Its two-seat capacity and speed limit of 50 km makes it a nice urban bachelor's vehicle. On the other hand, I haven't read yet if it can survive traffic jams, potholes, humps and flooded streets. I'm guessing it can barely.

The Tata Nano, on the other hand, with its two-cylinder engine, can reach 65 miles per hour and has enough space for four people. The price of a Tata Nano was published as just $2,500 or approximately P100,000. However, it doesn't have any add-ons such as radio and air conditioner.

Such inexpensive cars might attract buyers who also consider purchasing a motorbike or scooter to take a good look at their specs. On my part, I still prefer riding a car than a bike. With that amount, I would consider getting a second-hand car or a custom-built vehicle (a jeep) for more reliability. Of course, the car is not available here yet. Perhaps local car manufacturers can still improvise cheaper vehicles for local buyers. With the technology available nowadays, I'm sure there will be innovators out there who'll try to scale down the costs and at the same time make the add-ons available in a package that gives customers an efficient, environment-friendly and dependable vehicle that can survive local terrain.
