VW has figured out how to make a cheap car for around $8,000

Renault's Dacia brand has shown through its success that consumers are willing to give up some creature comforts for solid, basic transportation. Soon, Nissan will follow a similar path with the launch of its Datsunbrand in emerging markets. We've heard rumblings Volkswagen Group might follow the trend and go back to its roots with a second people's car, and the vehicle might be closer than ever.
