The EPAS in the Nano Twist has an ‘Active Return’ feature – which returns the steering wheel back to its straight-ahead position, as soon as the wheel is released. This is achieved by providing a calibrated return torque through the system. This self-centering action gives drivers confidence and stability at higher speeds thus delivering a great drive experience in city traffic. The Nano Twist is powered by a 624cc, multi-point fuel injected, water cooled, naturally aspirated, 2 cylinder gasoline engine with 2 valves per cylinder, mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine produces 38PS power, 51 Nm torque.
