Earlier it was reported that car will come up for exhibition in 2014 Auto Expo.

It however remains to be seen whether the company will make the diesel variant hit the streets, especially considering on rising fuel price in India.

Tata has designed and developed two new diesel engine options for Nano and it’s yet to be confirmed which one would finally make its way for the mini car. Besides, the BS IV engine development cost is proving to be expensive for the company and a higher price tag for the Nano’s diesel variant won’t be justified.

The company has recently launched the Nano e-Max CNG, which comes around with a price tag of Rs 2.52 lakh and Nano Twist, loaded with the ZF sourced power steering, is also in the pipeline. It’s being said that the power steering unit was also supposed to be included in the diesel variant in order to bring improvements in drivability.
