IAB Report – Tata’s Revotron engine family to power future UVs and SUVs

Posted on: Jul 8, 2014 - 12:26pm IST

Tata’s new 1.2-liter turbocharged Revotron engine will power the company’s Zest and Bolt, the two most significant launches for Tata Motors in recent times. Going forward, the engine technology will be used on a range of vehicles across Tata’s portfolio.

Speaking to Indian Autos Blog, Mr. Ranjit Yadav, president of Tata Motors passenger cars division said –

The Revotron is a brand we’ll proliferate across a range of vehicles. I’m not saying it (Revotron) is a family of small engines only.

The Revotron, a turbocharged MPFI engine technology with three driving modes, will serve on a family of engines powering Tata cars small and large.

Cars that are categorized as utility vehicles (SUVs and MUVs) will also benefit from this engine technology. Says Mr. Girish Wagh, senior vice president for program planning and project management of Tata Motors –

We’re going to have the Revotron family certainly in the entire car portfolio, and as we go ahead we will also see it in UVs. We see some utility vehicles coming with gasoline engines, some of our future UVs… Going ahead we’ll evaluate if it has to go into the Tata Nano as well.

Tata’s other gasoline engines are the 2.1-liter four-cylinder unit used on the Safari and Xenon and a 1.4-liter four-cylinder unit employed on the Indica platform products. These engines principally serve export markets where petrol is the preferred fuel.

The 1.2L Revotron engine for the Bolt and Zest will produce 90 PS of power and 140 Nm of torque. The engine will come paired to a 5-speed manual transmission, and an automated manual transmission (AMT) is not under immediate consideration for this petrol engine.

    Ecoboost might fit in A4 size paper but the company wont do this much of marketing and testing. They are testing this engine from 1 year without the performance company wont do this much publicity. They want to hit the target this time and they will hit. ………….

    Lets wait and see.

    Hi Anjan,
    What is the footprint of this engine compared to Ford 3 Cylinder 1.0-liter EcoBoost? I am glad that finally they spent few bucks to put a well designed engine cover to give it a modern look and feel!

    1. Hello Dr. Nayak! That’s a very interesting question, knowing that the Ecoboost fits on an A4 size paper. We didn’t check this fact but we can share next Monday as in the coming days as we are attending the media drive of the Tata Zest.
