TATA has an electric car with an expected $10,000 price tag:
200km range on a single charge. Affordable.
I can’t verify the 10K price tag anywhere else other than Next Big Future, so take that with a grain of salt (though most TATA products are super affordable). But it’s certainly a development I’ll be following.
Oh, and you won’t see these in the US, but in Spain and India, in the immediate future.
