In the words of Mork from Ork, "Nano, Nano"

Tata motors of India is considering a version of their Nano microcar for the US market. According to the New York Times, "An American version based on the Europa (a European minicar, expected to launch in 2011) is also under development, Mr. Tata confirmed during an interview at the Geneva auto show, and could arrive around the same time. Company officials say a hatchback and an automatic transmission are both in the works."

"Tata has not disclosed prices for Europe or America, and it has not commented on how the cars might be sold. But it is conceivable that the cars could be offered at Chrysler dealerships, given Tata’s business ties with Fiat, which now controls Chrysler. Sergio Marchionne, Fiat’s chief executive, has said he would like a budget brand that fits below Fiat’s existing models."
