Bookings for the Tata Nano GenX have commenced, and the amount is INR 5000. A launch is expected in the first half of May 2015. The GenX Nano will get a significant overhaul, including the inclusion of an automated manual transmission and a functional boot lid.
Apart from new styling tweaks, this will be the first time the Nano will be available with functional boot lid, which lends access to a 110 liter boot. Inside, apart from a reworked dashboard and newer upholstery, there’ll be the signature, Tata 3-spoke steering wheel, but stripped off its integrated controls.
The GenX Easy Shift will sport an all-new third generation automated manual transmission (AMT), with a creep function as well as a Sports mode! The 624cc, two-cylinder petrol engine stays on with minor fettling, with the Nano GenX Easy Shift purportedly returning 21.9 km/l. Also, the GenX will come with a larger 24 liter fuel tank.
Variants on offer for the GenX Nano will be XE, XM and XT for the manual, while the AMT equipped Easy Shift is likely to come in XM and XT variants only. The Nano GenX will be available in Pearl White, Meteor Silver, Sangria Red (all-new), Damson Purple, Royal Gold, Dazzle Blue and Persian Rose.
