About Nano

The Tata Nano was introduced as the One Lakh Rupee car when it was launched in 2008. It may not cost as less as its launch price now but it still is the World’s Cheapest car. Tata Nano is available in petrol and CNG variants and it is priced in the range of Rs.1.43 to 2.58 lakh (Ex-showr Read Less


Overview The Nano takes on the likes of the Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon. The Nano is a cute little city car with a unibody design. The front end houses a small boot and two diamond shaped headlights, a slab sided profile and signature Tata hatchback rear end with tall taillights. Groun d clearance is excellent at 180mm. The Nano is just 3.1 metres long and has the wheels extended at all corners resulting in a 2.23m wheelbase. This opens up a sizeable interior which is larger than what you get in an Alto. Plastics quality is passable and the seats are fairly comfortable. The rear seats are placed over the rear mounted engine and can get a bit uncomfortable at high speeds. The Nano is a simple design made to deliver on the value you get for your money and that means cost saving is evident on various fronts. The lack of cubby holes or the shortage of features are ways to save costs but owners will not mind that considering the running costs of the Nano are considerably lower than competition. The Nano is powered by a rear mounted 624cc two-cylinder diesel engine offering acceptable levels of performance for a car this size with these specifications. It develops 38PS of power and 51Nm of torque. It is mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox sending power to the rear wheels. Since the Nano weighs just 600kg, the small capacity engine provides adequate power for city runs. On the highway though, the Nano runs out of steam at 100-105kmph. The Nano returns impressive ARAI certified mileage of 25.4kmpl which is the highest for a petrol car. The Nano does not offer any safety aids like ABS and Airbags. The Nano as a City runabout makes a lot of sense. It is light, nimble and easy to park with the power steering variants. It is also very cheap to buy which works for first time car buyers.
