Srilanka seems to be a very good market for Tata Nano. During my previous trips, I have seen Tata Nanos in Colombo Airport, Nano Taxis in the country and many more Nanos on the road.
The latest news is GenX Tata Nano Automatik has been recently introduced in Srilanka, about an year after its home market launch.
GenX Tata Nano Automatik will be one of the most affordable automatic cars in Sri Lanka. Nano Auto gets a creep function, even a sports mode and manual mode.
In Srilanka, Tata Nano will be sold and serviced by DIMO, Tata's distributor for the island nation. (DIMO stands for Diesel and Motor Engineering Plc, they are also distributors for Mercedes Benz and Jeep in Srilanka. The most expensive XTA variant is likely to have a price tag of LKR 20 lakhs, which is approximately 9 lakh INR. This is about twice the on road price in India, which could be due to transportation cost and local taxes.
Nano gets a 38 PS, 624 cc engine rear mounted engine mated with 4 speed manual or 5 speed AMT gearbox. Colour options include Platinum Silver, Dazzle Blue, Damson Purple, Sangria Red (most popular one and the communication colour) and Pearl White.
