Tata Motors, in a statement earlier had announced that the Nano shall be available March 23 onwards, in addition to that what comes today is the unveiling of Tata Nano Europa, the car’s version for future International launches, esp in Europe. The difference being a longer wheelbase and standard safety features like airbags, ABS etc in addition to electronic power steering and others.
This is what the Press statement of Tata Motors had to say,
With a length of 3.29 metres and width of 1.58 metres, the Tata Nano Europa continues to be stylishly petite but surprises with its spacious interior and generous leg space. The slightly longer wheelbase of 2.28 metres combines excellent space and manoeuvrability, further improving on the benchmark standard set by the Tata Nano. The enhanced spaciousness is complemented by redesigned interiors, marked by smooth curves and a high tech yet gentle feel.
To meet the driving needs of its target customers, the Tata Nano Europa will be powered by a 3-cylinder sporty all-aluminium MPFI engine matched with a 5-speed automatic transmission, and electric power steering. The gasoline engine will be class-leading, providing high fuel efficiency and low CO2 emission of less than 100 gm / km meeting the twin goals of being environmentally friendly and stylish – just like the Tata Nano.
The Tata Nano Europa meets all safety regulations. In addition to the all sheet-metal body, its energy absorbing design, use of advanced restraint systems, ABS, ESP and Air Bags will enhance passenger safety.
Just like the Tata Nano, the Tata Nano Europa incorporates exterior compactness with interior comfort and seeks to provide motorists the pleasure and utility of personal mobility combined with affordability and environment-friendliness, in a world where smaller, fuel-efficient cars are emerging as a preferred choice
According to Autoblog.com says that the pricing could be around 5000 Euros that’s around 3.25 INR. Well, if it can come with an electric option and all the standard safety features, then I see a market for a complete car, rather than the stipped down version that’s being launched here.
In addition to this, Tata Motors also showcased Tata Prima concept luxury sedan and Indica EV, the electric version of the car.
