Tata goes down with a big bang-rated zero.
Last week, we told you about the poor results for several cars in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests. But nothing sold in America- not even the lowest-scoring Honda Fit-could kill you like this Indian Tata Nano. Scoring a perfect zero in Global NCAP testing, this airbag-less car gets crushed like a bug at 39mph. Even at $2,000 in India, its performance is abysmal. Tata's bad news follows itsmanaging director's suicidal leap from the 22nd floor of aBangkok hotel last week.
Watching this video, it looks like Tata Nano owners might feel asimilar crush when they take their cars out on the road. Few may live to actually talk about it.
