Tata Motors will be showcasing a performance version of its newest hatchback Bolt at the Geneva Show scheduled to take place next week. The powerful version of the Bolt will be launched under a new performance brand Tata is planning to launch towards the end of the year.
Powering the sporty Bolt will be the same 1.2-litre Revotron petrol mill, but the power output will be bumped from 89 bhp to around 120 bhp. Reports suggest the engine may also get a bump in the torque figure. To handle the extra output, Tata will employ the C501 gearbox from Fiat.
The model to be showcased in Geneva will adequately equipped with flared bodywork and 17 inch wheels. The interiors too will see minor tweaks to add some sportiness on the inside. The suspension too has been tweaked with stiffer damping and lowered ride height.
Tata Motors will be making the announcement of it’s new performance brand in the second half of this year. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more dope on the same.
