Mumbai:Tata Motors Ltd, set to start selling the world’s cheapest car Nano in India, unveiled a version of the hatchback for the international markets and an electric vehicle at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday.
The Nano Europa will be powered by a three-cylinder all-aluminium petrol engine with a five-speed automatic transmission, Tata Motors said in an emailed statement. The car is aimed at select international markets, the company said.
Tata Motors also displayed its Indica Vista EV, an electric vehicle that is currently undergoing tests in Europe. The car will be produced in association with Miljo Grenland/Innovasjon of Norway.
The Mumbai-based company said on 26 February that it would start accepting bookings for the Nano in the domestic market in the second week of April.
Tata Motors unveiled the Nano last year aiming to sell the car at Rs1 lakh, almost half the price of the next cheapest model in the country.
The company will sell the Nano in Europe for €5,000 (Rs3.27 lakh), ‘Bild’ newspaper reported last week, citing an interview with chairman Ratan Tata.
