Tata Bolt X crossover – IAB Rendering

Posted on: May 18, 2015 - 4:39pm IST

No official confirmation from Tata Motors.

With the increase in demand for hatchback-based crossovers, fueled by cars like the Toyota Etios Cross and Hyundai i20 Active, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Tata Motors also considers joining the bandwagon, though they haven’t expressed interest publicly.

In 2013, Tata Motors had given viewers an insight into their version of a hatchback-based crossover, much before the market began embracing the “wanna-be SUV” segment. Called the Tata Vista D90 Xtreme Concept, it was merely a Tata Vista with a 25 mm higher ground clearance, exclusive body cladding, exposed spare wheel, and large 16 inch rims.

Keeping the above concept in mind, our rendering artist Shoeb R Kalania has re-envisioned Tata’s soft-roader, although this time, it is based on the company’s newest hatchback – the Tata Bolt. As seen in many such crossovers in the country, the Tata Bolt X (speculative name) will feature a raised ground clearance as well as tough body cladding.

The current Bolt offers an engine lineup which includes a 90 PS 1.2 Revotron petrol engine paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It is likely that the crossover would also stick to the current engine lineup, if the company plans to dive into this niche.

    If Tata does decide then they will show a model in one year from now and launch it about three years from now – still an unfinished product – while the fad has already left the marketplace and then be surprised as to why it didn’t sell. Knowing Tata, this is exactly what they will do.
