With the trend of diesel engines in the current sales market, Tata is expected to launch the new Tata Nano diesel in 2014. Like the current petrol variant, the diesel variant is also expected to be the world’s least priced car. The diesel version of Nano would be incorporated with turbocharged diesel engine sourced from Garett which has already been spotted in the Tata Ace Dicor.
Coming to the technical specifications, this new turbocharged diesel engine would be an 800 cc engine which would provide a maximum power of 40 Bhp at a maximum torque of 51 Nm. The diesel variant is expected to be 50000 Rupees more than its existing petrol version and would also provide a fuel efficiency of 30 Kmpl. Apart from this there would be no changes in its interiors as well as exteriors and would continue to have the engine placed at the rear.
