The Tata Nano Kinda Kablooie It

March 25th, 2010 | 7 comments | Posted by Diana

Dear Automobile God,

Remember a little over a year ago, when I prayed to you asking for a Tata Nano, the world’s cheapest car? It’s so little and cute!


Well, looks like it’s also hellllllla flammable. Satish Sawant, a man from suburban Mumbai, narrowly escaped an explosion of his own new Nano this week–barely pulling his wife and 5-year-old son from the car before it was engulfed, inexplicably, in flames.

Tata Motors spokesperson Debasis Ray had a few words to address the incident, according to HuffPo: “It did catch fire. We’re trying to figure out what may have caused it,” Ray said.

The accident was later linked to a faulty electric switch and deemed a “one-off, stray incident.” Ray also commented that the car fire was unrelated to the three customers in India complained of their Nanos smoking last fall.

So yeah, um. I’m sure this car explosion is some kind of, y’know, cheapest car in the world anomoly. But like, if you haven’t put my Nano in the mail already, totally feel free to just FUGGEDIT.
