Tata Nano Twist XE launched at Rs. 2.06 lakh

Tata Motors has introduced a new base variant of the Nano Twist in India. Dubbed XE, the new variant is priced at Rs. 2.06 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

To differentiate the XE from the top-of-the-line XT, Tata Motors has given it black bumpers, door handles and side mirrors instead of colour-coded units. Chrome strips at the front and rear, fog lamps, full wheel covers, roof-mounted antenna and roof spoiler. The car is available in two body colours - meteor silver and royal gold.

On the inside, the XE gets a black dashboard, black fabric upholstery on the seats and door trim. Like the Nano Twist XT, the XE is equipped with power steering and air conditioning. However, it misses out on a heater, music system, front power windows, rear parcel shelf and a 12V power socket. Other features that have been left out include central locking and remote keyless entry.

The Nano Twist XE uses the same 624 cc, 2-cylinder, MPFi engine and 4-speed manual gearbox as other variants of the Nano.
