Though fuel price becoming tedious to car owners while they are in drive but now the Tata Motors is to launch Nano diesel Version soon in this financial year which will run Forty ( 40 ) Km per Liter matching the mileage of a typical 180cc motorcycle. It will be the most fuel-efficient car in India.
A senior executive of Bosch India, which is helping Tata Motors develop the engine for the model, said, "We have worked with Tata Motors for Nano's petrol version and we are working with it for the diesel version too. The car has a two-cylinder, 700cc engine which develops healthy power without compromising on fuel economy. Although official test figures have not been revealed, we expect it to run 40 km on one litre of diesel.
At 40km/litre, the running cost of the new Nano will be Rs 1/km. The capacity of the fuel tank is expected to be 15 litres. Tata Motors, the diesel version could finally attract customers opting for two-wheelers - the original idea behind the Tatas'Rs 1 lakh car project and at present the petrol version of Nano, which gives 20-25 km/litre and the another model Tata Indica is on fuel efficiency at present by Tata Motors.
At 40km/litre, the running cost of the new Nano will be Rs 1/km if the the fuel company will not increase fuel price in near year, the capacity of the fuel tank of Nano expected to be 15 litres.
With increased fuel economy, Tata Motors is aiming to target Maruti Suzuki, the country's largest car maker, whose unique selling proposition is mileage. It markets Tata Indica on the basis of its mileage of 20-25 km/litre, claimed to be the best in the industry, the model is expected to do well as diesel is subsidised in India, unlike petrol, the new Nano model that will run 40 kilometres on a litre of diesel, matching the mileage of a typical 180cc motorcycle.
