Tata Chairman Ratan Tata has recently revealed to media that Tata Motors is working on a more powerful Tata Nano 800 CC Car which will be launched in the year 2013 and will be placed between the existing Tata Nano and the larger Tata Indica series. The diesel version of Tata Nano is also under development for quite a long time now and it is expected to launch probably towards end of 2012 or early 2013. A Lot will depend on the Indian Union Budget approving or not approving additional duties on diesel cars in India which may make the basis of Tata Nano Diesel an unviable proposition. Not only Tata Nano Diesel, but most Diesel cars in India will get a big drawback if the additional duties are implemented. Lets wait and watch and hope for the best.
