This happens to be the European variant of Tata Nano, known as ‘Nano Europa‘. It made its debut in Geneva Motor Show in the year 2009 and is expected to hit the Indian streets by 2012.


Now, don’t you expect the price to be the same. This time Tata won’t be as caring as they were. The projected price happens to be nearly double that of the existent avatar of Nano and is around Rs. 2, 25,000.

Here is what PM Telang, MD of Tata Motors’ Indian operation, revealed,

It will have several additional features like a more powerful engine, power steering, airbags, ABS as well as higher structural strengths, better interior and a bigger wheelbase.

Well, if I am given a choice then I would definitely count on the fact that at this price there are other great offerings already rolling on the streets, so, what do you think? Atleast you can take a look at the specs and features below.
