Small is beautiful, seems to be the new mantra for India’s third largest car manufacturer Tata Motors. And most of us are already seen a picture of Tata Nano in different body styles, surfaced in Facebook long-time back that includes Nano in different avatars such as Convertible, Pick-up, Station Wagon and Sedan. Now the folks at Hindustan Times reveal that the company is silently working on a sedan version of the Nano.
Furthermore, they reveal that the sedan would have a stronger chassis to hold on more weight and will get a bigger 1.0-litre petrol motor. We speculate the Nano compact sedan to feature similar styling to the hatch, and don’t expect any major styling updates on the sedan. Of course, it will measure less than 4-metres to avail tax benefit. So, the low-price tag will be kept intact in-spite of being the sedan car.
Apart from the Nano sedan, we are aware that the company is working on CNG and diesel variants of the Nano, the CNG variant will be launched by mid-2013 while the diesel variant will be launched by end-2013. Another report in Economic Times suggests a new variant of Nano with an 800cc petrol engine is also in the works and will be ready in about 11 months from now.
Beside all these, Ratan Tata himself also gave a hint saying ‘it is time to refresh the Nano’ which reveals the updated Nano is in the works. However at the moment, the details of upcoming Nano variants are jumbled, nothing is clear and official. But one thing we assure you that, although the Tata Nano was not a great success has expected by the manufacturer, the company has still not lost hopes. And they’re trying their best to make the Nano bestselling car in the Indian car market.
