Tata Nano is now available as Nano CNG emax




One more CNG small car makes an entry into the crowded A-segment, this time its the world famous Tata Nano. Much anticipated to boost the dismal sales of its petrol variant, the Nano CNG looks promising on paper. Will it be successful in its conquest?

The Nano was expected to outclass all its competitors in terms of sales including the Maruti Suzuki 800 & Alto, but the sales charts narrates the opposite story. Alto (K10 & 800) continues to outsell all the other small cars in the market and is only followed closely by Maruti's two gems, Swift and Swift Dzire and the affordable WagonR. All the 4 Maruti-Suzuki models combined, make up more than 60% of top-10 cars sold in India per month.



Claims by Tata on the Nano CNG emax:


  • Most fuel efficient CNG passenger car - 36km/kg of CNG
  • Lowest cost of ownership
  • Lowest CO2 Emission of 75.6g/km

Key Points :

  • CNG emax is only available in one colour - Serene White
  • Two variants for CNG Nano - CX & LX
  • Available at the moment only in Delhi, Gujarat, parts of Maharashtra and Lucknow
  • The Nano emax is one of the 5 series of CNG models by TATA (expect more Tata cars with factory-fitted CNG)
  • Safety : CNG leak detection sensor & interlock sensors
  • CNG & Petrol bi-fuel system
  • Advanced Engine Management System (EMS) for smart switching between CNG and Gasoline fuel systems. This allows the vehicle to sense when the driver needs more power and thus, automatically shifts to gasoline mode.
  • CNG cylinders are fitted under the front seats which do not eat up the passenger or luggage space
  • The Nano CNG emax claims a range of more than 150 km (in CNG), in addition to the existing range of 375 km (in petrol)
  • Warranty of up to 60,000 kms or 4 years (whichever is earlier)
