The number of times I drive a year is closely correlated with the number of weddings I attend. So I have no emotional investment in this development: Tata Nano: The World’s Cheapest Car (more info here: Four Wheels for the Masses: The $2,500 Car, and especially this graphic). Any thoughts? (My usual design guru is incommunicado, planning a wedding of her own.)
On a related note, the IMF has recently found that biofuel production has helped to increase world food prices. Personally, I don't want my form of transportation to be an ecological competitor. Thank God no form of transport runs on bratwurst.
