Tata’s Micro Bullet-Proof Vehicle Is The Electric Powered Vehicle In All Terrorist’s Nightmares

Tata Motors Micro Bullet-Proof Vehicle
There was a time in the 1980’s when tatas was preceded by “bodacious” and referred to something totally different than cars. Now they’re known for cars and Tata Motors of India is also the proud owners of the Jaguar and Range Rover brands. In addition to passenger vehicles, Tata Motors produces armored transport and military support vehicles. Their latest on the defense side is the Tata Micro Bullet-Proof Vehicle (MBPV) or Anti-Terrorist Vehicle. This fully electric bad mother can hit speeds of 12 mph and is designed with angles to deflect bullets and the effects of hand grenades.

Not sure any terrorist or urban commando would want to face down the Tata MBPV. But wait, it sure is cute and just might be foiled by a non-lethal force. [Treehugger]
