Tata Nano AMT spied undisguised with F-TRONIC badge in Pune

After several months of testing wearing camouflage, Tata Nano AMT has shed the cloak for this early risen summer to get ready for a stage show.

Expect Tata Nano AMT to launch in a month or two.
New Tata Nano Twist Active F-Tronic XTA is the facelift model the Indian automaker unveiled at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. It has been spied testing several times in Pune and Coimbatore, where R&D was carried out.

The new avatar would show significant improvements in overall fit & finish, build quality and an upmarket appeal which Tata Motors is trying to enhance throughout its product range.

But the highlight of Tata Nano XTA will be the much celebrated (Automated Manual Transmission) AMT system. This variant would become the most affordable automatic car in India, and could change the general perception of Nano as a cheap car.

The AMT unit in Tata Nano comes from Magneti Marelli, who is also the supplier for Tata Zest, Maruti Celerio and Alto K10, Magneti Marelli.
Expect a long list of cosmetic changes as well as mechanical (pertaining to NVH and refinement) on new Tata Nano F-Tronic. Larger fuel tank with 24 litres capacity is also on cards.

Engine is expected to be the same 624cc MPFI naturally aspirated twin cylinder, which is seen on existing range of Nano variants in the market. This engine delivers 38 PS power and 51 Nm torque, mileage is at 25.4 kmpl.

Considering the price of Twist XT is Rs 2.48 lakhs, ex-showroom Pune, the FTronic variant of the same is expected to be priced about Rs 35,000 more expensive. Launch is expected to take place in the coming months.
