Tata Nano Specifications.

Posted on: March 19, 2009

Tata Motors will on Monday launch the “People’s Car”, the Nano, which it unveiled in January 2008 as the world’s cheapest car with a dealer price
of 100,000 rupees ($1,900).

Following are some details of the 4-door car, available in standard and deluxe versions:

Length: 3.1 metres

Height: 1.6 metres

Width: 1.5 metres

Engine: Rear-wheel drive, 2-cylinder, 623 cc, multi-point fuel-injection petrol engine, rear mounted. Tata said it is the first time a 2-cylinder gasoline engine is used in a car with single balancer shaft.

Safety: Has an all sheet-metal body, with crumple zones, intrusion-resistant doors, seat-belts, and rear tailgate glass bonded to the body. Tyres are tubeless.

Environment: Tailpipe emission performance beats current regulatory requirements, and the Nano has a lower overall pollution level than two-wheelers made in India, Tata has said. A high fuel efficiency (20 km/litre) ensures low carbon dioxide emissions.

The Team: In 2003, a four-member team at Tata’s Engineering Research Centre in Pune city started work on a “very low cost transportation with four wheels” and a price of 100,000 rupees. Helped by the Institute of Development in Automotive Engineering in Italy, the team grew to 500, headed by Girish Wagh.

Nano Europa: Will launch in some European markets by 2011:

Length: 3.29 metres; Width: 1.58 metres; Wheelbase: 2.28 metres. Engine: 3-cylinder, all-aluminium MPFI engine with 5-speed automatic transmission and electric power steering. Plus, advanced restraint systems, ABS, ESP and airbags.
