Tata Nano to Europe in four years
The $2500 car from Tata Motors is coming to Europe in 4 year’s time. The Nano was unveiled last month at the Delhi Autoexpo and if everything goes as per plan, the car will rock the world.
But before it begins its European innings, the car has to evolve and meet international standards. "We will develop a successor model in four years time, which will meet the Euro 5 emission regulations and the crash standards in Europe," Girish Wagh was quoted as saying by Focus in an advance abstract on Sunday.
Tata is apparently pushing hard to bring down the fuel consumption of the Nano from 5lit/100 km to 3lit/100 km. Tata will concentrate on selling the car on home turf before it heads to developing countries like southeast Asia, Latin America and African countries. Production will begin in October this year, and the company plans to produce about 250,000 units and eventually escalating to about a million units annually.
This car will address the cost-conscious customers, whether in India or abroad. The European version is expected to have a bigger engine, airbags, disc brakes up front and reengineered crumple zones. It might also come with a CVT option and upgraded styling. Would you buy it?
