The Bolt made its global debut a few days before its unveiling at the Auto Expo 2014. The Bolt, along with the Tata Zest, will be Tata’s latest offerings, before a smaller hatchback – to compete with the likes of the Maruti Wagon R – is set to launch in 2015. The Tata Bolt will enter production in July is most likely set for a festival season launch, as reported earlier.

The hatchback gets Tata Motors’ new family of turbocharged petrol engine, the Revotron engine, along with a standard diesel engine. The 1.2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder Revotron motor will produce 85 PS @ 5,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque between 1,750-3,000 rpm. The diesel will feature the familiar 1.3-liter Quadrajet motor outputting 75 PS and 190 Nm of torque.
