Tata Motors to launch Nano with power steering, name it as Nano Twist

Tata Motors will launch the Nano with a power steering by second week of January 2014. Though the Nano steering is light (thanks to the rear engine) steering the car during tight parking areas has been an issue. Earlier Tata Motors had worked on the steering column and front suspension to ease the problem but was not very effective.

Tata Motors has now decided to equip an electric power steering on the Nano sourced by ZF Friedrichshafen of Germany. The middle and top end variant will get the power steering options and will push the cost upwards by Rs. 15,000 to 20,000. Like Maruti and Hyundai used a suffix Spin and Xing respectively for their power steering cars Alto and Santro, the Nano will get a suffix too – Twist, so that it will be called Tata Nano Twist!
