Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The Tata Nano diesel is a long overdue model that was supposed to have made its debut by now. However, India's largest automaker is reportedly facing some technical difficulties that is keeping the much awaited car off the roads.
From previous spyshots, we know that the Nano diesel comes with redesigned front and rear bumpers to look different. The oil burning Nano looks a tad sportier than the 2013 model which was launched very recently. In addition, diesel versions offer a functional hatch door (note the key hole and door handle just above the rear bumper).
Here are the latest spyshots of the car which are courtesy of Rushlane.com. A spyshot also reveals the interior of the car and as far as we can see, the dashboard design and layout are same as the 2013 Nano. However, the car spotted misses the audio system.
The Nano diesel would be powered by a 800cc turbocharged engine which could be producing a power output in the vicinity of 40bhp. The car is expected to target a mileage figure of 35kpl.
The Nano diesel will be a part of Tata's HORINZONNEXT strategy which involves launching an array of new and refreshed products. The Nano CNG emax and this diesel variant are part of the lineup.
