When it comes it pours! Now my lappy is flooded with the pictures of Tata Bolt as launch nears. BharathAutos readers know that the bookings for the Bolt have already commenced, and the Bolt can be booked online for an amount of Rs 11,000. Earlier it was reported that the Bolt would be launched on January 20, 2015, but now the recent reports reveal that hatchback will make its debut on January 22, 2015.
Our reader Mr. Rahul Nair has yet again send us the pictures of Tata Bolt spotted at MK Motors in Kottayam, Kerala. This time wearing the Venetian Red exterior paint scheme which is the exclusive colour for the Bolt. The all-new hatchback, which was unveiled during the Indian Auto Expo 2014 along with Zest compact sedan has already arrived at dealerships and is also being displayed at various malls.
Since the Bolt is built for the global market, Tata Motors has focused on the looks of the car and has equipped it with all the latest features to attract consumers from across the country. It is speculated that alike Zest, Bolt will also succeed in receiving warm welcome from Indian buyers. The Zest has already revamped the image of the brand in India and we hope that the Bolt will push this further.

The petrol variant will be powered by a Revotron 1.2-litre turbocharged Multi Point Fuel Injection engine capable of peak power of 90 bhp and peak torque of 140 Nm, while its diesel counterpart will be a Fiat sourced 1.3-litre engine offering 75 bhp power and 190 Nm torque.
