It looks like Tata's least expensive car Nano is set to hit Indian roads in its new avatar. A new prototype of Nano Twist Active has been spied undergoing testing in the country, suggesting that the launch could happen soon.

The latest spy shots came from TeamBHP. Tata first showed the Nano Twist Active concept at Delhi Auto Expo 2014 along with and Nano Twist AMT F-Tronic ,since then the car has been getting lot of attention not just because of the exterior changes, but also because of the presence of automated manual transmission (AMT).

Expected to reach our market sometime in 2015, Nano Twist Active will get openable boot and changes are expected in the front and rear profiles. Under the hood, the new avatar of Nano is expected to get new three-cylinder petrol engine that can generate a power of 67ps.We also hear that the new model could also use the current 624 cc petrol engine, which can churn out a power of 37.4 hp @5500 rpm and a peak torque of 51 Nm at 4000 rpm.

Tata Nano Active was caught on camera before too and an earlier spy shot has shown the model in Black paintjob which is first in the Nano array. Fro what we have heard so far, Nano Twist Active is likely to get a price tag in the range of ₹2.38 to ₹2.45 lakh and the second model Twist AMT F-Tronic is expected to be priced in the range of ₹2.50 lakh to ₹2.65 lakh.
