Upcoming Wheels to Rock the Roads In 2013
Bangalore: 2013 is going to meet few extraordinary hot wheels. Just name it and you have it all – right from diesel, petrol, CNG to electric cars. We have brought down few such upcoming cars.
1. Tata Nano Diesel, CNG
Expected Price – 2.2 to 3.2 L
Expected to be Launched on May – June of 2013
Tata Motors is planning to roll out the CNG and diesel variants of Nano on track and the small car is gradually gaining popularity in new segments.
"Plans in this regard are not on hold. We have talked about both of those variants.... The Nano CNG is within the sight of first half of next calendar year," Tata Motors Managing Director (Domestic) Karl Slym told reporters in Mumbai.
The diesel variant of the Nano, however, is outside the first half of the next calendar year 2013, he said.
Admitting that the Nano's volumes have not come up to expectations, Tata Motors Passenger Car Business Unit President Ranjit Yadav said gradually the car, initially targeted as two-wheeler consumers who wanted to upgrade, is making inroads in other segments of buyers as well.
The Tata official said Nano cannot be compared with other cars around that category. "The Nano is a category and class by itself. There is enough space to grow in that category. More players in the market mean more opportunities for customers to explore," Yadav added.
