INDIA: Tata Motors stopped selling the country’s Nano small car and Safari Storme SUV when BS6 emission standards went into effect in April 2020.

The car, said to be the cheapest in the world, was not a successful venture for the country’s automaker. In May 2018, the Tata Nano came off the production line.

The 624-cc twin-cylinder gasoline engine that came standard on the compact hatchback produced 38 bhp and 51 nm of torque. A 4-speed manual, or AMT, gearbox was fitted in the Nano to transfer power to the rear wheels.

A recent media report suggests that the Indian automaker may consider reintroducing the Tata Nano with an electric drivetrain. Underpinning, suspension setup, and tyres will likely undergo significant adjustments for the Tata Nano EV.

In addition, the car manufacturer may resume negotiations with the government of Tamil Nadu to acquire Ford’s Maraimalainagar plant in the state if the Tata Nano EV plan reaches production. Notably, there has yet to be an official announcement for the Tata Nano electric car.

The Tigor EV, Xpres-T, and Nexon EV are the three electric cars the company sells in India. The Tiago EV’s prices, which range from Rs 8.49 lakh to Rs 11.79 lakh, were recently announced by Tata.

In January 2023, production of the electric hatchback will begin. Two lithium-ion batteries, rated at 19.2 kWh and 24 kWh, are available for the Tata Tiago EV, promising a range of 250 and 315 kilometers, respectively (MIDC).

Tata Ziptron high-voltage technology powers the electric hatch, which has a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor that generates 61 PS (110 Nm) from the smaller battery and 74 PS (114 Nm) from the larger battery.

The Tiago EV has three charging options: a 50 kW DC fast charger, a 7.2 kW AC fast charger, and a 3.3 kW home charger.
