Tata Motors is expected to break the cover of its much anticipated Bolt in India in the next couple of days. Ahead of its official unveiling, Tata has started dispatching Bolt to its dealerships in the country.
A fresh batch of images of Tata Bolt has hit the web once again. In the latest Images, the car is seen being unloaded from a truck before making its way to the dealership of the company. Thanks to the folk at Indian Autos Blog.
The company has already began accepting bookings for Bolt through its website earlier last month with a token amount of ₹11,000 and is expected to be presented to its fans in the country on 20 January.
The pricing details of the Bolt are yet to be known, however, reports on the web suggest that Tata will price its new hatchback competitively. Going by the rumours, the Bolt is likely to fall in the price range of ₹6.5 lakh.
With a wheelbase of 2,470mm, Tata Bolt measures 3,825mm in length, 1,695mm in width and 1,562mm in height. It comes with a ground clearance of 165mm and offers features like MapmyIndia GPS navigation, which is specially coded for integration between the phone and in-dash screen, dual airbags, ABS with EBD and Corner Stability Control.
Bolt will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options. Under the hood, the petrol variant of the car packs 1.2-litre Revotron turbo-charged engine, which is tuned to generate 84bhp at 5,000rpm and a torque of 140Nm of 1,750-3,500rpm.
The diesel model gets 1.3-litre Quadrajet diesel motor that can generate 73bhp and peak torque of 190Nm. Both the engines will come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Like the Zest, the Bolt will also offer Eco, City and Sport driving modes.
Once it hits the market, Bolt will rival Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai i10, i20, Honda Jazz and Chevrolet Beat in the domestic market.
