Funny Stock News – Ford to build affordable, smaller, more gas efficient car for India market

Front page news “Ford Motor company to sell small cars in India to expand car sales market” on Yahoo! Finance top stories. (For full article click here).

Okay first I find this funny because why can’t Ford (F @ $7) build small affordable cars in its own motherland the great USA? I think its funny when sales are bad because the cars still sucks, suck up gas, and aren’t what Americans want or will be loyal to. Although, now, Ford Motor company is building a 1.6 liter small engine car that is actually quite cool looking and only offering it in India. WTF?

Let’s look at the Mini. It’s small and has a 1.6 liter engine and now its one of the hottest cars on the American market while also dependable and gas efficient. Seriously, what are you think Ford company? Yes, expand to growing markets but why not sell us these perfect simple cars too? This car will be in direct competition now with India’s Tata Motors.

Well since I’m back from Hawaii I did a hard search on the most affordable MPG cars that have somewhat quality with them. I ended up buying a used 2003 Jetta TDI Diesel german car. It is all black with black interior. I really love it and I love that it gets 45-60 MPG. I’ve been able to do 600 miles on my 13 gallon tank. You do the math!!! I’m quite impressed and even with only 115hp is still moves pretty quick with full options on it. I spent $8500 and feel it was well worth it. I’d love to see myself put on 100-200k miles on it by myself without any major problems except normal maintanence.

So Ford Motor company what’s up? Think about us po-fokes wanting simple, small, MPG, affordable cars why give them exclusively to India when we have money to spend?

Tata Motors NANO car for $2500 (TTM @ $20) what a buy!

I’m so impressed that a car company in India has pulled something off that us big ego U.S. car makers would never try, build a smaller cheaper more affordable car. This company is going to fly in price currently very undervaluated at $20. If the car maker plans to build 250,000 Nano cars at $2500 on just the lowest priced one that is $600 million in revenue alone. Growth is certain that these people need cars, having one will increase productivity, creating a stronger economy. Remeber? Our cars built our economy in the beginning. This could be a big start for India’s Tata motors vision “the People’s car”. For more information check out the full article and specs here.
