The Bolt gets a 5-speed manual gearbox for both engines. The 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol is the Revotron engine that makes 85 PS at 5,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque between the range of 1,750 rpm and 3,000 rpm. The diesel engine will be the 1.3-liter Quadrajet motor, sourced from Fiat, outputting 90 PS @ 4,000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque between 1,750-3,000 rpm.

The company’s design studios in Pune (India), Coventry (UK) and Turin (Italy) came together to finalise on the design of the hatchback that gets speed sensitive electronic power assisted steering and ‘Active return’ function. Tata says that the Bolt’s dual path suspension has been linked to a zero pivot subframe that promises a comfortable ride.

    90ps from 1.3 diesel. Are they using variable geometry ? because in India it will get the fixed geometry turbo.

    It’s our nation’s pride to see these next-gen cars representing India at the prestigious Geneva Motor Show and keep the Indian flag flying high.

    I am eagerly waiting to experience the Revotron engine on the petrol version and the AMT on the diesel version.

      Good to see patriotic talk on this blog. It is time to take the gloves of and confront the foreign auto companies who sell substandard products in India. Classic example is the new Ford Ecosport with the turbocharged engine that they make in India (not the modern Ecosport engine which is imported and not produced locally). Ask tough questions to these auto companies, why are you producing the substandard engines locally and import modern engines from other third world countries?
