The World's Cheapest Car
I thought we all want something with cheaper price, especially when we buy anything. I still find many people in traditional market still bargain the things. This is become my idea to write this hub. Other reason I write this hub is because having a car is also my dream. I hope this information give us knowledge about other side of the cheapest things. At this time we can find this in the car. What is your favorite car? If we talk about favorite car, we may choose the best car and the comfortable car. I think the price of the car is expensive. For me personally, I can't buy kind of this car. But if we want something cheaper or affordable price, economical, simple design, cute and easy to drive. Maybe these cars are suitable for us. If we don't have enough money, we may can't buy a new car. But I present the collections of the cheapest new car in the world. When we talk about the cheapest car, we still remember about Tata Nano, the cheapest car from India. But I also include this car through this hub to remind us again.
When we talk something cheaper, it can't be separated from China. China is the biggest country for the citizen and for the industry also. It also happen in my country, if we talk about something cheaper we all agree that it certainly come from China or made in China. Such as: electronic equipment, cellular phone, and vehicle. Why this can be happen? It is happen because the cheap of cost production, labor, and they clever to imitate brand.In 2010, China produce the cheapest car and the other car planned to produce in 2012. Please take a look!

But this time volkswagen representative office in china, namely Volkswagen China Group is fully subsidiary by the Germany Volkswagen Group for the China's people. With the big hope they can produce 200,000 vehicles per year, with the factory in Guangzhou. Although China could produce their own car, but Japan brands still dominated the market. Beside other automobile manufacturers like General Motor which is successfully launched Chevrolet Spark and Sail as the small car.
