Tata's ambitious Nano is all ready to make a comeback in an all-new avatar. The rumoured electric model of the vehicle reportedly called Jayem Neo will be launched in India on November 28.

However, Tata motors will only get to supply Nano body shells without the engine and transmission to Coimbatore-based Jayem Automotives, which will further manufacture and market the EV.

The joint venture is the result of the two companies' long association which will allow Jayem to sell Neo under their brand name. Reports suggest that Tata can also introduce their own version of the car.

Autocar India magazine reported that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to unveil the car. The ruling party has been promoting electric mobility to combat the ill effects of Pollution, which is worsening in the national capital.
