Tata Motors may launch the facelifted model of their lowest priced car, the Nano, next month. The facelifted version has previously been spied with camouflage during testing runs in various locations across the country over the last few months. It was finally spotted undisguised during a shoot for its TVC in South Mumbai two months ago.
The upcoming Nano get mainly cosmetic change in a bid to give it a more upmarket appeal. The facelifted Nano will get large chrome strip running across the bonnet – a way to make it look more premium. The rear end of the car gets the same large chrome strip treatment and also an additional air intake that will help to cool off the engine more efficiently.
The facelifted Nano is expected to debut a new diesel engine that has been developed American manufacturer Honeywell for the Indian automaker. The oil burner will be an 800cc that produces 43.5PS. We have also revealed exclusively that the Nano diesel will go into production next February and that is likely to use a plastic fuel tank to save on weight. To increase the range Tata is also expected to include a CNG option along with standard 624cc petrol mill.
