SPIED: Tata Nano Twist F-Tronic (AMT) Spotted: Cheapest Auto Gear Shift Car in the Making:

For the first time ever, conclusive spyshots of the upcoming Tata Nano with Auto Gear Shift, made popular by the term AMT (Automated Manual Transmission), have appeared online.

These pictures come courtesy Motoroids.com and shows a couple of Nano Twist F-Tronics (that’s the term Tata will use for their AMT Nano) parked and covered up in complete camouflage. This is the first time that the test mules of the Nano Twist F-Tronic have been seen on public roadS. The vehicle was first unveiled during the Auto Expo 2014 at Noida.

The grainy images of the interior of the car show the AMT gear leaver done up in chrome along with the front power window switches, a bit of the steering wheel and the left-hand side stalk. The test mule also sports a different and lighter upholstery as well as door inserts from the Auto Expo display Nano.

According to the official specs, we know that the new Nano will host a larger 24-liter fuel tank, new front and rear bumpers, new instrument cluster, a tailgate that really opens to let you stove away your weekly grocery or your annoying poodle in the small boot.


The Nano Twist F-Tronic will sport a 2-cylinder BS IV petrol engine good for about 38 bhp with a usable 51 Nm of torque. The 765 kg (kerb) car will be assisted by an electric power-assisted steering and drums will take care of the braking chores. (Check official specs)

The overall quality of Nano is thankfully getting upgraded and the new variant is likely to be a solid, little city stroller making easy work of threading through stop-and-go city traffic and did we say it will be the cheapest automatic (auto gear shift) car in India.
