Three years ago when India's Tata Motors launched its Nano car line, observer said it was impossible to make cars smaller or cheaper. Well, they've been proven wrong. This week another Indian manufacturer, Bajaj, revealed the teensy RE60. It has been crowned the new champion in the race to the microscopic.
We thought we'd compare the RE60 and America's biggest passenger automobile - the fully loaded Escalade.
– The Indian entry weighs 881 pounds. The American: 7,100 pounds.
– The RE60 gets 82 miles to the gallon. The Escalade, 18 miles to the gallon.
– When it comes to price, the Cadillac with all the bells and whistles will run you well over $80,000. That is about 40 times what the Indian car is expected to cost.
Finally, while the Cadillac seats eight comfortably, the RE60, supposedly, seats four passengers, which means four Indians (which probably translates into two Americans).
"... the RE60, supposedly, seats four passengers.. " Seeing as how 400 Indians will crowd onto a 100 passenger train, I can't wait to see how this works out for the turban jockeys.
Good theme, used to use it but decided to change over to another one just recently. Psicologas en rosario y psicologia en rosario para la ansiedad y depresion o depresivo. Richard Bandler estubo en Argentina.
