Speaking to RushLane, a dealer in Pune confirmed that the reason for this huge cut in price of current Nano Twist is the fast approaching launch of new Nano. Tata Motors launched the current Nano Twist XE variant earlier this year in February at a price of Rs 2.18 lakhs.
New Nano, which is called as the GenX Nano, will be offered in a choice of manual and AMT transmission options. Making matters worse for current Nano is the start of booking and arrival of new Nano in dealerships. Considering that Tata Motors is promoting the new Nano as the safest and most advanced ever, people are obviously waiting for the new Nano, and are not willing to buy current Nano.
To be officially launched on May 19, 2015, Tata GenX Nano with AMT will receive a number of upgrades, the most outstanding of which will be its functional bootlid revealing a 94 litre luggage hold for AMT and 110 litre for manual variant. New front and rear bumpers are evident while interiors receive a new steering wheel similar to the more premium Tata cars, Zest and Bolt.
The new Tata GenX Nano will be powered by the same twin cylinder engine which does duty on the current Nano. It is a 624.5 cc engine offering 38.19 PS peak power at 5,500 rpm and 51 Nm peak torque at 4,000 rpm. MT variant will get a 4 speed gearbox, while the AMT variant features a 5 speed box. New Nano will sport a 24 liter tank as compared to the 15 liter tank seen on its earlier counterpart. Tata GenX Nano MT will offer fuel efficiency of 23.6 kmpl while the AMT variant offers 21.9 kmph (ARAI certified claim).
