Tata Nano with Automatic Manual Transmission and power steering options could well pave the way for Nano’s success in the future. Much publicized as the Poor Man’s Car, Tata Motors are introducing a slew of measures to take the Nano from its present position to a new branding and hopefully extensive sales.
Over the last few months, Tata has changed a lot in the Nano as compared to what it was when it was first launched in March 2009. Tata Motors recently launched Nano Twist, the one with same two cylinder 624 cc cc MPFI engine, but with a power steering system. This version is priced at about Rs 2.35 lakhs ex-showroom. The Nano also gets increased internal entertainment features and more cabin comforts.
Tata Motors is working with Italian component makers to introduce this semi automatic version of Nano, reveals ET. This semi automatic version is a clutchless car using AMT as seen on the upcoming Maruti Celerio soon to be launched at the 2014 Auto Expo. AMT on board the Tata Nano will make more desirable besides the fact that it is cheaper than conventional automatic transmission.
The company is trying hard to reposition the Nano as a young and vibrant brand. Its ‘awesomeness’ campaign projected the Nano as a chic and youth oriented car. Tata Motors is eager to expand export markets and planning to set up assembly units in Indonesia and South America, two countries where till date the Nano was brought in via the CBU route.
