Tata unveiled new Nano — new interior, better mileage [video] image

Tata Motors, the Mumbuai based automaker on Monday announced new features for the Nano model, including improved fuel efficiency, at no extra cost.

The car’s 624cc engine now delivers 38hp of power, while Tata claims that mileage has been improved to 25.4 km per liter, up from existing 23.6 km per liter.

Besides, the company said: “The high fuel efficiency, with a low kerb weight of 600 kg, ensures that the Tata Nano at 92.7 gram per kilometre has the lowest CO2 (carbon dioxide) emission among cars in India”.

The earlier Nano had an emission record of 101 gram in every km.

Tata has also worked on the exhaust note of the car, which earlier sounded more like a small diesel commercial vehicle than a car. Tata Motors, in their official statement have suggested that the exhaust now sounds ‘racier’.

The entry-level variant of the Nano will now have features like booster-assisted brakes, which were available only in the mid and top-end variants.

Tata Nano Standard: colors: Rouge Red, Aqua Blue, Serene White — along with clear headlamps, tubeless tyres and tip-tap driver side mirror, booster-assisted brakes and front suspension with anti-roll bar.
