Tata Nano Diesel the much awaited launch because it is economical, cheap, high quality and the best choice for a common family, expected to break covers in early 2012. According recent reports, Tata Motors may launch the Nano diesel at the Auto Expo 2012 as its huge platform to display a revolutionary product to the world. However, the news is not officially confirmed, so there may or may not be an Auto Expo launch of Nano Diesel in India. What we expect is that Tata Nano Diesel will be unveiled and showcased at the Auto Expo while the car’s price announcement and sales will happen in March during third anniversary celebrations of Tata Nano.
It has been just a week when Tata upgraded the Tata Nano with its new improved version called the Tata Nano 2012 which features better performance, suspensions and interiors at the same cost as earlier. The powerplant is a 700cc and 2 cylinder in configuration and coupled with the 15 liter fuel tank, Nano should a range of about 600 kms. Now, the source of this exciting news –
“We have worked with Tata Motors for Nano’s petrol version and we are working with it for the diesel version too. The car has a two-cylinder, 700cc engine which develops healthy power without compromising on fuel economy. Although official test figures have not been revealed, we expect it to run 40 km on one litre of diesel,” a Bosch India executive working on the Nano diesel project, said.
The diesel engine variant will be an icing on the cake with an expected mileage of close to 40 KMPL on Diesel, the Nano Diesel may become quite popular with a Sub-2-Lakh rupees price tag for the base variant. It will be interesting to see when that happens. If this cannot give a boost to Nano’s sales, we do not know what can.
