Tata Nano   The Times of India:  Tata Nano cars with a diesel engine will be rolled out in August or September, vendor sources said.  The diesel Nano could be crucial to the turnaround of the Nano brand which has taken a beating in the recent months due to poor sales, price increase and some safety concerns.

Follow up:

"The diesel engine will be in the 600-700 cc range like the petrol version and could be priced at a slight premium over the current variants," said the vendor source. Component makers expect the diesel Nano to sport a price tag between Rs 1.8-2.2 lakh. Tata Motors spokesperson refused to comment.

The diesel Nano will be the smallest and cheapest diesel car in the market and sport a sub-1000 cc engine, but with output and performance 20-30% better than is usual for that engine size, sources said.

Honeywell has developed the world's smallest turbo systems for Nano, while Bosch will fit the smallest common rail direct injection (CRDi) system. The other partners in the project includes AVL, FEV and Ricardo.
