TATA Nano To Return as EV



Ratan Tata wanted to sell cars to middle-class households at the same price as two-wheelers. The creation of Ratan Tata’s vision was introduced as the Tata Nano in 2008 and continued to be produced until 2018 before being discontinued. Tata Nano has a strong brand recall despite being discontinued. One that Tata Motors might make use of in the future.

In spite of this, one of India’s biggest automakers, Tata Motors, intends to technically reintroduce the Tata Nano, the country’s first microcar. The company has made the decision to revive the Nano and release it as an electric car.

Is Nano returning as an EV?

Currently, Tata Motors is India’s top producer of electric vehicles. When the nation’s entire EV sales are taken into consideration, Tata holds a market share of more than 80%. They currently sell Tiago EV, Tigor EV, and Nexon EV. Plans are in motion to introduce more electric vehicles soon in order to maintain leadership in the expanding EV segment.

A new generation of electric vehicles is expected to generate a lot of excitement in India. In China, the mini-EV market is now experiencing tremendous growth. The most popular vehicle in China, for instance, is the WulingHongguang Mini EV. This two-door micro-electric car is reasonably priced, makes for the ideal city getaway, and has two doors.

A 200 km range, Rs. 4.79 lakh PMV electric vehicle was just introduced. Additionally, MG plans to export its Air EV to India. This mini-EV trend may attract a lot of startup companies. If it ever becomes a reality, Tata’s electric Nano will fit in here. This time around, things might go differently than in Tata Motors’ earlier attempts to retrofit an electric motor and battery into the existing Nano. Most likely, it will be a brand-new automobile with contemporary styling that was created as a Born Electric Vehicle.


  • According to major media estimates, the Tata Nano EV may receive a battery pack ranging from 17 to 20 kWh, with an estimated range of about 200 kilometers.
  • The Nano’s ICE version featured a 624cc gasoline engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
  • The potential Nano EV will be built on the same X3 platform but will have modified suspension and tires to make room for a new electric drivetrain.
  • More than 400 of the Nano EVs were supposed to serve as the foundation of OLA’s Electric Cab Fleet.

Jayem Neo – Electric Cab

An electric version of the Nano had previously been announced by Jayem Automotives, a partner of Tata Motors. These were to be ordered in 2017 in a quantity of 400 units and employed as city taxis for the fleet operations of Ola Electric. This undertaking was never completed. The Jayem Neo electric test mule was discovered doing testing in December 2020 close to Akurdi, Pune. Jayem Automotives had squeezed 17 kWh of the battery into the compact Nano. According to ARAI certification, it boasted a range of 203 km on a single charge. It has an 85 km/h peak speed as well.

The Nano EV has not been formally introduced by Tata Motors. If it’s being thought about, it might be one of the 10 new electric vehicles that Tata plans to release over the next five years. They presented the Curvv and Avinya EV ideas earlier this year.
