The dealerships themselves will undergo changes with regards to the ambience, purchase experience and after-market service. The revamped dealerships will be loaded with technology, wherein, customers, with help of specially trained sales managers, will be able to configure their cars real time on video walls using tablet PCs.

The Tata Zest is a compact sedan that will take on the likes of the Hyundai Xcent, Honda Amaze, Maruti Swift Dzire and Chevrolet Sail. The Bolt will be positioned to rival the likes of the Maruti Swift, Ford Figo, Honda Brio, Chevrolet Sail UV-A, Nissan Micra, Renault Pulse, etc.

Powering the petrol variants of the Bolt and Zest will be the job of Tata’s newly-developed 1.2-liter turbocharged Revotron engine which produces 85 PS at 5,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque between 1,750-3,000 rpm. The petrol variants were announced with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The diesel variants source their power from Fiat’s 1.3-liter Multijet engine. The Zest diesel was announced with an automated manual transmission (AMT), a first for a car in this segment.

    Tata better do something fast about their sales. From being number 3 and selling approx 24,000 cars per month, Tata Motors has fallen to Number 6 and selling about 7,000 cars per month. This is really a sad state of affairs. The Bolt and Zest are their last chance to make a comeback.
