Tata Plans to Launch New Diesel Nano with a 40kmpl Mileage

When Tata first introduced the Nano, they brought a new meaning to thrifty engineering. Tata now plans to make the Nano even more economical. According to recent reports, Tata is busy planning on launching a Nano which will efficiently provide a mileage of 40kmpl of diesel. This will make it one of India’s most fuel-efficient models. Tata is expected to launch this car by this fiscal year itself.

A senior executive with Bosch India, which is currently helping Tata in developing the model’s engine, said that they had worked with the company in developing the petrol version of the Nano and are working on its diesel variant now. The car will feature a 700cc two cylinder engine, which will provide sufficient power without compromising on the car’s fuel economy.


While Tata has not yet released any official figures, as of yet, it is expected that the car will run on 40kmpl of diesel. A spokesperson from Tata refused to reveal any information, stating that Tata continuously upgrades their products; however they do not give guidance on their innovations.

The car will accomplish its original promise to replace the family two-wheeler with the Nano. According to reports, the diesel version might finally attract these customers who opt for two-wheelers, which was the original inspiration behind this Rs 1 lakh car endeavour. At only 40kmpl, the new Nano’s running cost will be Rs 1 per km.

The new Nano will have a  fuel tank with an expected capacity of 15 litres, will be slated for launch in the  latter part of the year 2011. Tata Motors is reportedly targeting Maruti, the largest car manufacturer in India whose USP is mileage, with their new increased fuel economy Nano. The company also markets the Tata Indica on the basis of its mileage of 20 to 25 kmpl, which is the best in the auto industry.

According to reports, Bajaj Auto is also working with Nissan and Renault in developing a petrol variant which also aims on offering 40kmpl.
