The Tata Nano diesel has been spied a number of times. Now, the blokes at Overdrive have caught the Tata Nano diesel on a video, which features a new design on the front fascia. The Tata Nano diesel launch may happen in a couple of months.
It may be noted the Nano diesel will carry over the design cues which were showcased in the Tata Nano Twist Active Concept at the Auto Expo 2014 last month. The test mule features the bumpers and the honeycomb grille seen on the Twist Active Concept.

Here is the video footage of the Nano diesel :
The Tata Nano diesel will be powered by an 800 cc mill, which is expected to deliver an outstanding fuel efficiency figure of around 40 kmpl. This is the same engine which does the duty in the Tata Ace, but without a turbocharger. The Nano diesel will use a turbocharger from Garrett, which will enable the motor to churn out 40 PS of max power and 90 Nm of peak torque.
Expected to be launched in late 2014 or early 2015, the diesel variant of the car will be priced around 70,000 INR more than the petrol variants. It may be noted that Tata is trying to shed the 1 lakh car tag with which the Nano was marketed initially. With the launch of the Nano Twist with a power steering and Nano CNG, Tata is leaving no stone unturned in an effort to increase the sales of the Nano.
