The new Nano GenX is finally all set for its launch and this time it will carry with itself a big USP – the clutchless AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) which the company calls Easy Shift. The facelifted Nano is scheduled to officially go on sale on May 19th which is when its prices will also be known. The new car has however started reaching dealerships and our Managing Editor recently spotted a unit at a showroom while out for a leisure outing.
The display unit spotted is a manual variant with the top end Twist. Labelled as the Nano Twist XT, the car has an openable rear tailgate and the new smiley front and rear bumpers with fog lamps at either ends!
Although the faux wood inserts on the dashboard are not seen in this model but the top end AMT variant is expected to have them as the one seen at the Auto Expo last year. The steering wheel is a fresher Zest/Bolt inspired unit and the overall quality seems much better and improved!
The openable tailgate allows the Nano GenX to have a utility boot space of 110 litres with the manual gearbox and 94 litre with the AMT. Nano GenX with AMT will come with a rated fuel efficiency of 21.9 kmpl. The Tata Nano GenX also gets a bigger 24 litre fuel tank up from the current 15 liters.
The car will come with 7 color options and we have shared a leaked list of all its features here.
