Okay, now we come to the middle-of-the road, or the middle of the range Nano, the Tata Nano CX.
The Nano CX version is available in both Bharat Stage II compliant and Stage III complaint versions. There is a price difference too, between the two.
What do you get? Fve colour choices, and four paint types, plus the above mentioned emission types. The BS II version of the Nano CX is available in solid paint and a metallic paint versions.
Tata Nano CX price
Ex-showroom price of the Nano CX with solid paint and BS II, at Pantnagar, where Tata Motors manufactures the car, is Rs. 1,39,780.
Ex-showroom prices for Delhi and Mumbai are not available at this point, but expect to pay around Rs 3000 more in Delhi. In Mumbai, the price would be somewhere around Rs 10,000 more than that. Effectively Rs 1.5 lakh. On-road price of the Nano CX would be even higher and inch closer to Rs 1.7 lakhs in Mumbai, we think.
The Tata Nano CX BSII version with metallic paint Rs 1,42,780 in Pantnagar ex-showroom, Rs 3,000 more than the solid paint version. Prices would be correspondingly higher in Mumbai and Delhi.
Now we come to the Nano CX with solid paint and BS III compliancy, and the Pantnagar ex-showroom price goes up to Rs 1,45,725. It costs Rs 1,48,360 ex-showroom Delhi, and Rs 1,60,320 Mumbai. For on-road price, add some Rs 20,000 to it. (It could be more)
For the Nano CX with metallic paint and BS III, the price is 1,48,725 ex-showroom Pantnagar, Rs 1,51,360 ex-showroom Delhi and Rs 1,63,320 ex-showroom Mumbai. On-road prices, as before!
The Nano CX can be booked at Rs 120,000 – but we think if you go to any of Tata Motors’ preferred partners, you can do the booking at Rs 3,000 and pay the rest when the booking is approved. No one seems to be very clear about this part.
