Welcome to the Future: Tata Motors’ Disposable 1-Lakh Car

Samir Syed at The Truth About Cars
The era of the mass market disposable car is nigh. Let’s check the trend...

In 1909, Ford’s entry-level Model T cost $850. In 2008, the Ford Focus’ base price is $13,715. Priced in 1909 dollars, Ford’s entry-level U.S. model would cost $633. That’s a net savings of $217 in 1909 dollars compared to the Model T, or about 26 percent. And that’s without considering the vast improvements in safety, comfort, reliability, performance, etc.
