New Delhi: With the implementation of BS6 emission norms in April 2020, Tata Motors discontinued the Nano small car and the Safari Storme SUV in the country. Touted to be the cheapest car in the world, theceapes failed to generate volume for the carmaker in the country. The car rolled off the production line in May 2018.

Engine

The small hatchback was offered with a 624cc twin-cylinder petrol engine that was good for 38bhp and 51Nm. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual or AMT gearbox.

According to a fresh report in the media, the domestic automaker might be considering re-launching the Tata Nano with an electric drive. The Tata Nano EV is likely to see significant changes in underpinning, suspension setup and tyres.

The report further states that the automaker could resume talks with the Tamil Nadu government to acquire Ford’s Maraimalainanagar plant if the Tata Nano EV plan reaches the production stage. It should be noted that there is no official word on the Tata Nano electric car.
