The first glimpse of the F-Tronic version of Nano Twist was seen at the February held Auto Expo event in Delhi. The 'Most Affordable' car titled car is now due to be released with Automated Manual Transmission technology, thereby making it a semi-automatic variant. Sometime ago the hatchback has also been spotted being tested on Indian roads.

The Interiors in the upcoming Nano Twist F-Tronic is expected to remain more or less the same like the recently launched Nano Twist. Tata cars have always been known for space, the same lineage is passed on to the F-Tronic as well with ample headroom and legroom for its occupants. Moreover, with the inclusion of Electric Power Assisted Steering, driving around within the city has become more enjoyable. Given the technological developments, Tata Motors seems to aim at shifting gears in the Indian automotive industry with its new F-Tronic range of cars.
