A rather different variant of India's least expensive car has been spotted testing under the cover of light camouflage.
No, this is not the fabled diesel powered variant of the Nano, but one that does not make use of the internal combustion engine. The Nano spotted here is an electric car.
The biggest hint about the shocking nature of the electric Nano is the presence of an electric socket on the left rear fender.
Another rather large giveaway is how low the suspension of the spied Nano rides. The gap between the wheel arch and the tyre is a lot narrower, when compared to any other Nano on sale today.
This could very well be due to the presence of the battery pack which would add a considerable amount of weight to the car.
It is far too early to speculate on the Nano EV's electric drivetrain, but an electric nano isn't that new for Tata, who showcased an electric variant of the Nano at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
