1809

We have another exclusive today morning. A really massive one.

Caught somewhere in Pune, this Lunar Silver top-end variant looks like any normal Tata Nano on test.

Until you look at the hinge at the rear windshield.

According to the Ragav who sent this picture in, the entire tailgate will not lift up like a hatchback. Instead, the rear windshield will hinge on mounts provided on the roof. The glass can be pulled upwards to gain access to the area behind the rear seat. Observe the circled area of the image.

Tata Nano upgrade

Confusion still exists as the parcel shelf will not permit items to be tossed into the luggage area. Perhaps the new model will come with a detachable parcel shelf or will lack one altogether?

The Tata Nano upgrade is expected with many goodies including electric power steering, 5-speed manual transmission and improved interiors.

    “May be they can do some horizontal venting in the rear.” Let me make it more specific; I was aiming at the grill around the number plate.

    I have another suggestion :
    there is some free space in front of the gear console; beneath the dash. Why don’t they convert it as a storage with a closing lid ? Guess that space wont be of much use otherwise.

    It is nice that Tata is reconsidering the design flaws. it is nice car altogether, except for a few cons that :
    1. they should make cup holders standard
    2. battery should be relocated to front ( nano is not a one lakh car any more )
    3. a compartment in the dash
    4. provision for speakers (two at least ) – It has got lot of free space beneath the dash )
    plus the hinged rear shield.
    May be they can do some horizontal venting in the rear instead of the present ones

      @Deepak – Could you please elaborate on the point “May be they can do some horizontal venting in the rear.”
