Tata Bolt and Zest could reach the European markets before India

Snapshot: Tata Motors will showcase the Bolt and Zest at upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Expected to reach the European showrooms soon after it

Tata Motors is preparing to boost its presence in the European market with the introduction of its recently unveiled Bolt hatchback and Zest compact sedan. Both the models are due to make their debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor show starting from the sixth of next month. Tata Motors has ambitious plans, with Bolt and Zest likely to be launched in Italy, Spain and Turkey soon after their debut at the prestigious show.

Tata has put in a lot of effort to develop the Bolt and Zest. However, both cars are based on the existing X1 platform (with underpinnings from both Vista and Manza) but the engineers at Tata have worked hard on the cars to give them the go to match the show. Key elements also include items like new projector headlamps with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) , 15-inch alloy wheels, 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth technology with smartphone integration and navigation, smart voice recognition and a touch phone controlled interface. More importantly, comfort and convenience facets are much improved over previous versions as is the quality of fit, finish and interiors – the Tata engineers and designers deserve a pat on the back for this.



The Zest and the Bolt also get new powerplants. Petrol power comes from the new 1.2-litre turbo-charged “Revotron” while diesel power is courtesy Fiat’s trusted 1.3-litre MultiJet oil burner. Interestingly, both the new models will feature a 5-speed Automated Manual transmission (AMT) along with a new Electronic power assisted steering feature, that comes with active return and speed sensitive features.

The Zest and the Bolt have generated considerable interest not only in India, but also in countries where the model is exported. They are expected to debut in the Indian market in the second quarter of this financial year!
