This could simply refer to the Tata Aria automatic transmission variant that the company showcased at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. We have also seen spyshots of this model being tested in India.

Sales of the Tata Aria has been startlingly low, given how good an offering it is, mainly thanks to its exorbitant price tag. Tata Motors issued a massive Rs 2.5 lakh discount for the Aria in March 2013, despite which its sales never touched triple digits in any of the following months.

The report also states that the company is looking to incorporate the electronic power steering system in the Tata Nano Twist on other Tata models. The Nano Twist’s power steering was developed by ZF and uses a brushless motor to reduce steering strain.

    Tata aria is a fantastic car which I have driven till date, but it failed to create an impact in the market because of its price tag. I heard tata motors are launching automatic transmission for tata aria, but again anything above 15 lakhs on road price for the top version will be a disaster as Indian consumer is price conscious

    Aria is the best looking Tata so far, very futuristic. Even if its heavy, its proportionately efficient w.r.t its rival. Once the likes of power steering developed by ZF, effective ABS and EBD gets fitted, then this could make be more handling friendly beast.
    But Tata need to develop more confidence among the buyers
