Tata Nano to Come with CVT
Tata’s vision was to make the Nano the most affordable car which is easy to drive and own. The vision is still incomplete as Tata is not offering Automatic Transmission on the Nano that promises to make the ‘first time’ driver’s life a lot easier.
that may be about to change as Autocar India is reporting that the Nano team is working on a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) variant of the Nano that will provide the best drivability for the common man.
Once the deal is finalized, the Canadian company could set up shop close to the Nano plant in Sanand. Tata could also consider bringing the second generation model to other markets in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. CVs are nothing new in India, Honda used to provide it on their City.
But Tata could expose the gearboxes to a much wider market in India if it introduces it in the Nano, as it also offers other better mileage and a smoother driving experience than a traditional automatic. The smoother-shifting Nano is predicted to arrive in India in November this year.
