Tata Nano To Return As An EV | Get Ready For Tata Nano EV!

While India is trying to acclimatize to the EV rage taken from the Chinese. Carmakers in India are already expanding their EV lineups, and with India sorting itself to rely on alternate fuels and electric vehicles, It seems that in the next 15-20 years, ICE cars will be considered a collector’s item.

With that said, one of India’s largest carmakers Tata Motors is planning to re-introduce the nation’s first microcar, the Tata Nano, technically. The brand has decided to pull the Nano from the dead and relaunch it as an electric vehicle.

Yes, The sole brainchild of Ratan Tata might make a comeback in an electric avatar. Here are a few things we know about the Tata Nano EV.

  • It is also being reported that Tata Motors is already in talks with the Tamil Nadu government to acquire Ford’s car manufacturing facility to expand its EV lineup.
  • We can also expect the Tata Nano electric to feature Tata’s propriety Ziptron EV Tech.
  • It was back in 2017 when Pune-based Jayem Automotives, in collaboration with Tata Motors, launched the performance variant of the Tata Tiago, named the Tata Tiago JTP.
  • A similar idea of the Tata Nano EV also made it to the idea table. Tata Motors and Jayem Automotives started working a the Nano EV.
  • In fact, a Test Mule of the Nano EV was spotted at the Tata Motors Akurdi Plant in Pune.
  • The plan was to kickstart OLA’s Electric Cab Fleet with just over 400 units of the Nano EVs.

  • However, the ambitious Tata Nano EV plan was then abruptly redacted due to unknown reasons.
  • When launched of the Tata Nano EV is expected to rival the soon-to-launch MG Air EV and the recently launched PMV electric (the cheapest Electric Car in India).
  • However, due to the fact that the PMV EASE is a two-seater, it technically qualifies as a Quadracycle. So with the launch of the Nano EV, it can be India’s cheapest proper electric car.
  • Going by leading media reports, the Tata Nano EV might get a 17kWh to 20kwh battery pack with an alleged range of around 200kms.

  • In its ICE form, the Nano used to come with a 624cc petrol engine paired with 5-speed manual gearbox.
  • The prospective Nano EV will be based on the same X3 platform, with a different Suspension and Tyre setup to accommodate the new EV Powertrain.
  • As of 2022, Tata Motors hold a strong 88% market share in the EV segment in India. With the Nano EV launch, this share percentage will get a strong boost.
  • Tata will have an EV in its portfolio for every car segment and budget in India.
  • Now, returning to its EV form, its Nano version is also expected to have an ARAI-certified range of 200km on a single charge.

    Need of the hour now is to mass produce small-EVs for the common man…
