Currently, Tata Motor Group is in plans to introduce an entry level car in the Indian automobile market. This model named, Tata Pelican is said to be getting launched in the coming year i.e. 2016. As per rumors, it is an upgraded version of Nano, which might be slightly bigger than it in terms of exterior dimensions. The company may develop it based on the Nano's modified X302 platform and will manufacture at their Sanand factory in Gujarat. This might be positioned above Nano and it may be priced around Rs. 2.50 lakhs (ex-showroom). After its launch, it will compete with some of the successful models like Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon. This all new hatchback might make its debut in country's market with both petrol and diesel engine options for the populace to select from. The petrol power plant is expected to be of 1.0-litre and may come with three cylinders. It can be seen as an upgrade to the Nano's petrol engine, which has the displacement capacity of 624cc and integrated with two cylinders. Also, it is likely to be offered with a 0.8-litre diesel motor that is developed by Bosch India. On the other hand, there are rumors doing rounds that this home bred car maker will shelve the plan of offering a diesel mill. The reason behind this is its high NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) levels, which might not be appropriate for the passenger car segment. This is the same motor, which presently powers one of its commercial vehicle named Ace. However, if this will be the engine on offer, they might be expected to have paired with a five speed manual transmission gear box.
According to some news reports, this yet to be launched vehicle may be incorporated with the same chassis as the Nano. But then, there is possibility of some improvements as well. In terms of braking, they may come with a set of sturdy drum brakes for all its four wheels. Moreover, this small car could probably get a power assisted steering system that ensures easy drivability. As it is still under development, no pictures or news about it are out yet. It is anticipated to carry the same compact body structure, but in a design that is more refreshing. Car enthusiasts can certainly hope for some modified aspects be it in its front, side or rear profiles. Then again, its not just features, but the manufacturer may perhaps offer it in some attractive body paint options as well. As of now, there is no information available yet regarding the aspects that might be loaded inside its cabin. But we can expect standard features like a neatly designed dashboard, a responsive steering wheel, well cushioned seats, storage spaces and a few utility based aspects as well. As mentioned above, it might be slightly bigger than Nano. Therefore, it gives a clear indication of its roomy internal section along with ample head and leg space to its occupants. Besides all these, it is anticipated to have some security aspects as well that will ensure high level of protection to its passengers.
