  • Tata's Nano Drives Into the US Wednesday, 13 Jan 2010 | 12:23 PM ET
    Tata Nano

    This car is not yet approved by the DOT for street driving, so my limited test drive was limited to an industrial complex outside Detroit. But even in short drive, the Nano impressed me with plenty of pep and responsive handling. Its tight turning radius will be an asset for zipping around in urban areas with tight spaces. For an entry-level car, it works. You don't get the feeling you are driving a compact car that lacks power and agility.

    Ed Whitacre

    One month into his tenure as CEO of GM, Ed Whitacre Jr. has a pretty simple game plan for getting GM back on track: just make money. Don't laugh.

    Maybe it's because the Chinese are new to the auto game. Maybe it's because Americans automatically think, "we invented the car business and nobody can do it better than us." Or maybe it's because some people are worried the Chinese will grow Volvo and become an increasing threat to the Big 3.
