So this means Tata had never shelved the plans of Nano diesel and was silently working on this to avoid any hype. This would be the same 0.8l 2cyl Turbo diesel shown at the auto expo last year I guess.
I always had a feeling that if Maruti is brave enough to launch a 2cyl diesel Celerio for 5.5L, Why won't Tata do the same with the Nano for 3L? So now, the wait begins!
Tata was actually testing the engine on on ACE and concludes be to be a reliable motor.
Now the time has arrived to put it on Nano or maybe Pelican:)
The only gamble is whether people will take it or not as the engine noise will remain like Autos (irony of two cylinder engines).
