Tata Nano – the world’s cheapest car, is on the extreme verge of transformation of image to a smart city car. In an effort to make the Nano package more desirable, Tata Motors is reported to be working on a more powerful engine version that will be supercharged – designated for the drive-enthusiasts, and more probably the youths. It will be the first time the Nano’s engine will be tweaked.
The second big thing that Nano is going to see is the AMT (automatic) gearbox, which we are already informed at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014.
The third major invention on the Nano’s platform is said to be the part-Electric variant, to be uttered as ‘e-rev’. This part-EV will cater to the Indian audience as well as international.
Though very sketchy images are only available about the aforesaid variants, but still it can be reported the company is quite serious about the Nano project.
“Tata Motors is constantly working on upgrades, new variants, and new projects. We continue to look at new and refreshed products to be launched across various segments and, of course, test these vehicles and the same is applicable to the Nano,” said a company spokesperson. “While we have high degree of technology-readiness and the programme offers several competitive strengths, it is difficult to predict the exact timeframe needed to create the right ecosystem for this to be a market-viable project.”
Hopefully, with all the three variants in the developments Tata Motors will surely fill in the remaining gap of product line, but what kept us pondering over is “diesel variant”. We can take, the oil burner variant of Nano is seemed to have taken a backseat in the R&D. What say?
