Tata Motors has launched a CNG version of its award-winning small car, the Nano.
The Tata Nano emax was revealed by the carmaker earlier in the year as part of a new initiative -- Horizonext. The Nano emax comes equipped with a 12-litre CNG tank and its claimed 36km per kg fuel efficiency should allow a range of 400km. The CNG-fuelled engine is good for 32.5bhp and 5kgm of torque. An engine management system will enable on-the-fly switching between petrol and CNG.
The CNG version of the Tata Nano is available in two variants, CX and LX.
The major differences from the petrol variants are the CNG toggle switch and a green surround for the speedo.
Ankush Arora, vice president, passenger vehicle business unit, Tata Motors, said, “From its inception, the Nano has been a path-breaking invention and the CNG version only adds to that and also underlines our commitment to be a sustainable automotive player.”
The Tata Nano CNG CX is priced at Rs 2.52 lakh while the LX variant is priced at Rs 2.77 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
