Sir Ratan Tata is a man on a mission: to make India’s roads safer by getting people off motorbikes and into the world’s cheapest car – the Tata Nano. In India it’s common to see a family of four riding a motorbike and on bad roads in monsoon rain that’s a lethal way to commute. Tata envisages the Nano as a ‘people’s car’ – India’s answer to the Model T. But to bring his car to the people he must overcome some formidable challenges. Design issues and skyrocketing costs threaten to blow out the car’s $2200 price tag, and violent protests force him to dismantle and shift his 3 billion dollar Megafactory 2100km across India.
