Tata Bolt to Launch on January 20, 2015 in India

Snapshot: The company had just started the advance bookings for the hatchback online at a token amount of Rs. 11,000.

Tata Motors has announced that it would launch the keenly awaited Bolt hatchback on January 20, 2015 in India. The company had just started the advance bookings for the hatchback online at a token amount of Rs. 11,000. Recently, about a fortnight back, the company had commenced the media drives of the hatchback and it would be Tata's first product launch of 2015, followed by the 'Kite' twins later on.

Bolt is an all-new product from the home-grown automajor which underpins the same platform as the Vista hatchback, albeit modified to accommodate it. It is company's second product, after the Zest compact sedan, which falls under Tata's HorizonNext strategy. Tata Motors' focus has now shifted towards all-new products to revive its fortunes in the country, rather than launching the facelift versions of its existing models. The exterior appearance of the Bolt is certainly improved than other company products, all credit to Pratap Bose (Design Director, Tata Motors) & Team for working their heart out. However, the major change comes in form of the interiors which are striking, up-market and advanced than before.

Talking about the engines, Bolt would be offered in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with 1.2T Revotorn motor and 1.3L Multi-jet engine, respectively. The former would churn out a maximum power of 89 bhp and pak torque of 140Nm, while the latter would be generating a highest power output of 73 bhp and top torque performance of 190Nm. The company has declined all the possibilities of introducing the AMT gearbox with Bolt and instead relying on its conventional 5-speed manual transmission. It would be competing against the likes of Hyundai Elite i20, Volkswagen Polo, Fiat Punto EVO and Maruti Swift in Indian market. Tata Bolt is expected to priced in a range of Rs. 5-7 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, India).
