Tata Nano Europa on Display at Geneva

Indian automaker Tata Motors has just introduced the Nano Europa at the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. Basically, the new Tata Nano model is especially addressed to the European market but the car manufacturer hasn't released any specific detail regarding the official launch of the model in this side of the market.

In short terms, the Tata Nano Europa features a slightly longer wheelbase of 2.28 meters plus minor interior modifications. The car is still powered by a 3-cylinder all-aluminum MPFI engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission said to provide CO2 emissions of less than 100 g/km.

The European version also complies with all safety requirements, including mandatory equipment such as ABS and airbags. In addition, Tata Nano Europa boasts ESP and crumple zones to absorb impacts and protect the passengers.

“In India, the Nano will be launched on March 23, and the cars will be on display at company dealerships from the first week of April. The Nano has also generated wide interest in developed countries, since its unveiling in Delhi and its presentation here last year. We are delighted to present the Nano Europa for future launch in such markets," Ratan N. Tata, Chairman of Tata Sons and Tata Motors, said.

Besides the aforementioned Nano Europa, Tata Motors also rolled out the Prima, a luxury sedan concept designed by Pininfarina, and the Indica Vista EV, an electric model delivering an autonomy of up to 200 km. Other highlights of the electric Indica Vista include 0 - 60 km/h sprint in less than 10 seconds and super polymer lithium-ion battery.

"The Indica Vista EV represents the work of Tata Motors on alternate technologies, while the Prima is an iteration of a luxury sedan we will introduce. They together signify the ongoing evolution in our cars," Ratan N. Tata concluded.
