Tata Motors showcase 1.2-liter turbo-petrol ‘Revotron’ engine


Shrawan Raja,

I’m the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

Tata Motors announced a new family of engines called ‘Revotron’ and showcased the first engine in the series – a 1.2-liter turbocharged MPFI petrol engine – in Mumbai this afternoon. Tata Motors does not specifically state which product this engine would find application first, but said it’s designed for the compact car segment from a global approach.

Tata’s 1.2-liter Revotron engine is the first MPFI turbo petrol in the Indian small car segment.

The 1.2-liter unit, the first MPFI turbo, features an Advanced catalytic converter for reduced emissions. The four-cylinder unit has a 75mm x 69.5mm Bore x Stroke dimension producing 85 PS @ 5,000 RPM and 140 Nm between 1,750 – 3,500 RPM. The engine employs two valves per cylinder and will pair with existing gearboxes when launched. Tata however say new gearboxes are on their way.

The engine features a water-cooled turbocharger with low inertial turbo wheels, asymmetric pistons with PVD coating, stiffened cast iron crankcase, silent steel construction oil sump, 8-hole injectors, and is capable of meeting future emission norms.

Tata also say the engines offer ‘superior noise performance’ and multiple driving modes the driver can choose from.

We’re expecting more details in a short while, so check back for more updates.
