Tata nixed the Nano for Europe and instead we’ll be getting the Pixel, reports Autocar. Rroduction versions of this low-cost city car will have a three-cylinder diesel engine, but this neat-looking Megapixel concept has a range-extended electric powertrain combining a single-cylinder 30bhp, 350cc petrol engine and four in-wheel electric motors. It’ll do 68mph and has an all-electric range of 54 miles; overall range is nearly 560 miles.

More news:

  • Renault’s pricing the Zoe electric supermini from £13,650 (taking into account the government Plug-In Car grant). Not cheap, but more accessible than its rivals.Range is up to 130 miles (60 in adverse weather conditions), and it’s compatible with the Better Place battery-swap tech should that arrive in the UK.
