It looks like Tata Motors is putting its Nano electric through rigorous testing in India. The Nano Electric Vehicle (EV) was snapped undergoing testing in the country once again, not long after the first set of spy shots of the electric variant of the cheapest car emerged online.
The latest spy shots come from Team BHP and the interesting bit is that the images give a closer look at what is believed to be the electric power socket of the upcoming Nano Electric on the rear fender. The spotted test mule is the tweaked version of the existing Nano AMT variant — GenX Nano, which is the heaviest model in its line-up. The spotted test mule was also seen partly camouflaged, indicating that the new variant could also incorporate cosmetic changes.
As reported previously, the suspension has been compressed in the new variant and this is believed to have been done to accommodate the heavy battery. Not much is known about the model and the details are expected to come in the coming days.
It was reported earlier that the Nano Electric may take long to launch in the country. If launched, the Nano Electric would benefit from the NEMMP (National Electric Mobility Mission Plan) of the government, which would help the company to keep the price low.
Tata had showcased Nano EV at the Geneva Motor Show in 2010 and the rumours suggest that this could be getting into production soon.
