There are exactly one thousand two hundred and seventy two variants of Nano in the works so that at least a few may work! On a serious note the latest Nano GenX loaded with AMT appears to be ‘The Nano‘ that should click for Tata. It should end up being the kick the Pune based manufacturer was waiting for… But what apart from this, if you may ask….
Back in June 2014, the first whispers of a Turbocharged Nano being under works emerged. But hey a Nano with a turbocharged engine…? really? And in a latest interview with Autocar Pro, Tata’s Senior VP Programme Planning & Project Management, Girish Wagh, officially confirmed that they are, indeed, working on a Turbocharged version of the cute little Nano!
He further said that the turbocharged version of the car will be for the more passionate car lovers in the country and to give Nano a sportier inclination. With this, they also have plans to build upon the ‘Nano’ brand, which has been given an ultimatum by Cyrus Mistry to Perform or Perish!
Currently Tata offers a Turbocharged engine on their Bolt hatchback but for sure, if Nano gets one, it will be a lot smaller. We do not think Tata may add a turbocharger to the current 624cc NA engine and instead they may just use a shortened version of the 1.2L Revotron, possibly a three-cylinder motor or something. However, its all conjectures at this time but what gets confirmed is that the project ‘Nano Turbocharged’ is definitely under consideration! Our thumbs up Tata, Bring it on…
