Tata Motors is planning to exhume out revised or completely new car models in the coming year 2012. The leading Indian car manufacturer has been in news for quite a long time as it unveiled the most eagerly awaited Nano in the country, which is termed as the world's cheapest car. Once again Tata prepares to dominate the car market headlines by its plan to launch a ‘complete package’ version of the Nano on Indian roads by 2012. The deluxe Nano, apart from possessing an engine with powerful configurations, would also carry the comfort and safety tags. Features like power steering, air bags and ABS would make the car more complete.

The deluxe Nano has been brought in at the time when Tata Motors adds advancements to its budget car for the European markets, called 'Nano Europa', which was also showcased at the Geneva Motor Show last year. Moreover, the company mulls upon launching the same car in India too, after it debuts in Europe. Tata Motors' India operations Managing Director P.M. Telang confirmed the news saying, "Yes, there is a chance of Tata Motors launching the Nano Europa in the Indian market as well."
