We have spied Tata Nano test mules quite a number of times in and around Pune a few of them suspected to be CNG variants. However, we now have confirmed Nano CNG Scoop with us.
IndianAutosBlog has posted a spy pic of Tata Nano in orange color with a clear CNG decal at the rear. This confirms that Tata has been testing the Nano CNG and it is expected to be launched somewhere around or before Diwali in India.
This is the LX variant which was spied and we do not see any other changes to the outer appearance of the cute little car. It is also reported that Nano would have a 17 liter CNG tank which would go along with its petrol tank capacity of 15 liters.
We have also exclusively spotted a Left Hand Drive Tata Nano in the same color in Pune which would be exported to other LHD countries.
We also spotted a cute two-tone Nano undergoing tests in Pune and here is a pic. We wonder what is Tata upto and guess it could be some Limited Edition that they might be working on to create some buzz.
The CNG variant is definitely bound to increase Nano’s monthly sales, however, it would be the diesel Nano which we expect would make a significant improvement to Nano’s much-needed sales. In an exclusive scoop, we have also spotted Nano Diesel on the streets of Pune a few months back.
