The MPFI engine which employs an aluminium cylinder head and cast iron block is engineered to offer three driving modes to suit the driver’s preference. Depending on the variants, the Bolt petrol weighs between 1,095 – 1,125 kg.

    Only disappointment is, lack of LED DRL lights. Who designs a new car to
    be launched in 2015 without it? They don’t even have to go to some multinational
    companies for this, as you can design and source them from Indigenous suppliers
    like De Core Science & Technologies.

    Better than Vista. But am eagerly waiting for next-gen cars from Tata on completely new platforms and completely new engines.
