Official – Tata Nano Twist (power steering variant) launches on Monday

Posted on: Jan 10, 2014 - 5:40pm IST

Tata Motors will launch a new variant of the Tata Nano in Mumbai on Monday (Jan 13). Though the media invitation does not specify which variant it is, company sources confirm that it is the Tata Nano Twist.

Externally, the vehicle does not have differences except for the ‘Twist’ badge on the fixed tailgate and a new ‘Damson Purple’ body color that adorned the ‘Tata Nano Concept’ in the previous edition of the Delhi Auto Expo.

The Tata Nano Concept wore the ‘Damson Purple’ at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.

The power steering variant is fitted with a ZF-developed electric power steering unit (EPS) that uses a brushless motor. The steering ratio is the same as the manual version but it takes relatively lesser effort to steer the car, which was quite a task especially for women drivers while parking and in rush hour traffic.

Designers have also executed a new instrument cluster (as these spyshots show) that has more functions. Besides the speedometer, the centrally mounted cluster also has LED temperature and fuel gauges.

We expect Tata Motors to price the Nano Twist at about 15,000-20,000 rupees over the corresponding non-power-steering variant. The power steering Nano will come in ‘XC’ and ‘XT’ variants.

    There should be a fully packed variant of the Nano, to improve its image, like ABS, Touch screen Multimedia System, Leather Seats, Bigger Alloy Wheels, Refreshed head lights with DRLs, On Steering Controls for Music, more safety options, etc. I am sure, Tata will be proud of the New Fully Packed Nano’s sales and margins.

    Looks good for a car that costs less than 2.4L. Just the upgrade to the aluminum wheels on my Beemer had the same price tag!!
