Bookings underway.

As the launch date of the Tata Bolt nears (January 20, 2015 reportedly), and as online bookings have already started, initial display and demo cars are finding their way to dealerships. Indian Autos Blog reader, Mr. Mohamed Shahid Hussain, spotted the first units of the car arriving at a showroom in South India.

Powering this variant is the 1.2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which makes 90 PS and 140 Nm of torque, and is matched to a 5-speed manual transmission.
