Gallery: All-Electric Tata Nano Revealed in Geneva

 

We were beyond excited upon learning that the world’s cheapest car, the Tata Nano, might be released in hybrid form. But it looks like Tata has skipped the step of going hybrid and has decided to release an all-electric version of the Nano instead!

The Tata Nano EV, revealed this week at the Geneva Auto Show, seats four adults and is outfitted with “super polymer lithium ion batteries”.  The car isn’t meant for going too far or too fast– it offers up a range of just 99 miles and goes from 0 to 60 kilometers per hour in less than 10 seconds. But consider this: the regular Tata Nano costs $2,200. The electric version will cost significantly more because of its lithium-ion batteries, but we’re betting that Tata’s expertise in making ultra-cheap vehicles could keep the Nano EV in an accessible price range for most consumers. We’ll find out when the car goes into production later this year.

    This looks like a great choice for EVeryone as gas goes to $6-8 in the USA like it is in Europe. As pollution grows all over the world this could make a big helping hand
