Horizonext saw the birth of a new breed of cars from the Tata Motors' stable; it started with the Zest and now the second product i.e. the Bolt hatchback is on its way to the market.
Tata Motors will launch the new hatchback on January 20, 2015. Tata Motors has already started online bookings for the Bolt and interested customers can pay Rs. 11,000 to book the car.
Though the company hopes to move away from the Indica fame via this hatchback, we have our doubts because the two cars are pretty much similar. The Bolt will be powered by the new 1.2-litre turbocharged MPFi Revotron engine which delivers 89bhp. Much like the Zest, the diesel version of the Bolt will come with the automated manual transmission. The Bolt, upon its launch, will take on the likes of the Hyundai i20, Fiat Punto, and Maruti Suzuki Swift among others.
