Sorry if i sound ignorant but i still don't see why anyone outside a third-world country would opt to buy such a cheap car. For the price i'm pretty sure the safety will be extremely low compared to other cars, built quality and materials as well and so on. I mean i do get the whole "cheap car for the people" concept but if i could not afford to buy a brand new car i would still not go for this thing, why not buy a 10 year old second-hand Toyota or any other brand instead for the same money? And i would most probably get a much much safer and better built car by doing so...

I dont see why you think they even intent to sell this car to you? You see they have a billion plus people in their country and many more in so called third world who would happily buy these cars.What matters to you is that with all the profit they rake in,they could eventually buy up your favourite truck or hot rod makers.
Oh yeah and about 10 yr old Toyotas- India does not allow importing cheap used cars like Australia does and there arent many 10yr old Japanese cars available there(except crappy little Suzukis).Import cars coast a lot more in India thanhere in US for example.A base Corolla I think is about $30K US and Camcords-about $45K!

Default No Nano for you!

That is correct. This is a car for people whose other transport options are scooters, seats on a minibus, or a very old Maruti or Hindustan. In rural India the roads are poor and they don't have the sort of "throwaway" culture that makes used cars widely available. This car will put hundreds of thousands of Indians (for better or for worse) on wheels.

lol the spec sheet is pretty interesting when you read all the cost cutting moves, like an approximate speedo, parts that are glued together instead of being welded, etc. those tires dont look like they would hold up too well in a rollover situation.
