    ONE LAKH CAR

    OK.

    So, if 50 million individual units can potentially be sold, then what will this suddenspike in the number of units on the road affect an already horrible traffic situation? I know that in India, even people with lots of money don't choose to buy a car because of the practicality---where the hell will they park if they want to take their new mini-car to the movies or shopping? Will the infrastructure meet the demand? Maybe somewhat.

    Will villagers buy this car given a decent loan term? I suspect "yes".

    If Tata can provide a vehicle that small farmers could use to transport their wares, and for the small merchants to move merchandise, and for the postal service, etc etc. I think we have a winner here.

    Tata could make loads of money on the interest on the car loans as well as the secondary markets for parts/service, etc.

    There really is wealth at the bottom of the pyramid.
