GENEVA (Reuters) - India’s top vehicle maker, Tata Motors, said on Tuesday it would bring an electric version of the Nano, the world’s cheapest car, to Europe within three years, starting with Britain and Scandinavia.

Tata has said it would begin selling the gasoline-engine Nano in Europe by next year, as it aims to expand its reach beyond India and other emerging markets.

At the Geneva auto show, vice chairman Ravi Kant declined to disclose a price range for the electric Nano, adding there were no immediate plans to sell the zero-emission Nano in India.
