Spy Pics: Tata Nano Pelican Spotted Testing

Written By:

The next generation of the Tata Nano codenamed 'Pelican', has been spotted testing once again under heavy camouflage.

The test mule was spotted doing its testing rounds near the city of Pune.

The Pelican will not bring about a revolutionary change with regards to the styling but instead, the cosmetic changes will be an evolution of the current Gen X Nano's design. The car retains the Nano Gen X's front and rear bumpers but the bonnet and headlamps seem to have come from the Nano Europa Concept from a while back.

Under the hood, the Pelican is expected to carry a 3-cylinder petrol engine that will help it compete with the likes of the Maruti Alto 800 and the Renault Kwid. Tata is also expected to fit the Pelican with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The Pelican could also very well be the Nano that will have that elusive diesel engine, something that has been the subject of rumours ever since the original Nano came out in 2008.

The last time the Nano Pelican was spotted a rather startling change with regards to the interiors of the car was revealed. The change is quite visible in the shot taken through the window of the test mule as well.

The centre mounted speedometer now sits in its rightful place behind the steering wheel while the infotainment system looks like it has been ripped off directly from the Tiago.
