Tata Motors has
launched the new Nano Twist, a new addition to the Nano range. The new Nano
Twist comes with a new first-in-class Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS)
system, designed for easy maneuvering in tight driving and parking situations. There
is also a new new signature Damson Purple colour, with chrome accents, new
sporty interiors with new fabrics and stunning in-car features. The new Nano Twist
XT is priced at Rs. 2.36 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
Twist is powered by a 624cc, multi-point fuel injected, water cooled, naturally
aspirated, 2 cylinder gasoline engine with 2 valves per cylinder, mated to a 4-speed
manual transmission. The engine produces 38PS power, 51 Nm torque. The Nano
continues to remain as the most fuel efficient petrol car, as the Nano range
offers a fuel efficiency of 25.4 kmpl, as certified by the Automotive Research
Association of India (ARAI).
Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system comprises of a steering
column-mounted brushless motor and an ECU (Electronic Control Unit), which helps
the driver steer the Nano Twist with ease, regardless of the road conditions. The
brushless motor used, also improves robustness of the internal components of
the Nano Twist’s EPAS system. The new EPAS system also allows the driver to
fully utilise the Nano’s class-leading, lowest turning circle radius of 4 metres.
The EPAS in the Nano Twist has an ‘Active Return’ feature – which returns the steering
wheel back to its straight-ahead position, as soon as the wheel is released.
This is achieved by providing a calibrated return torque through the system.
This self-centering action gives drivers confidence and stability at higher
speeds thus delivering a great drive experience in city traffic.
Unveiling the Nano Twist, Ranjit Yadav,
President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors, said, “The Nano Twist will redefine
customer’s driving experience in city traffic with the EPAS. It comes loaded
with trendy features, exciting new colour and sporty interiors, which makes it
a cool, smart city car to hang-out with.”
