Tata Motors is planning to produce an electric version of the Tata Nano, according to a German press report.

The Electric Nano would be built in cooperation with the Norwegian electric car specialist firm Miljoebil Grenland, the Hamburg-based Auto Bild newspaper said.

The Nano is a no frills basic car with a 33 hp 623 cc engine. It has no air-conditioning, electric windows or power steering that are standard in modern new cars. Nano is likely to be on the roads by October.
