Car Review :My name is BOLT.Tata BOLT

Tata Motors unveiled  their new car “BOLT“a hatchback  with grand launch in Mumbai. I visited the BOLT during their promotion campaign at Inorbit, Vashi.

Tata-Bolt-booking-01

The latest entrant in this segment is going to take on the mighty Maruti Swift and Hyundai i10 in fiercely competitive market.

When I first saw BOLT, it reminded me of VISTA but then there’s  X elements in BOLT which distinguished from others.There are four models of Bolt – named – XE (entry level), XM (medium), XMS (medium with extra safety) and XT (top model). The Bolt comes in two variants – Petrol and Diesel.

Let me tell you friends, BOLT is going to beat all the cars in this segment.

The unique features have made BOLT stand from rest of the car. Let’s have a look at BOLT inside view

Tata-Bolt-front-fascia

The five feature that I found the best are : –

 Multi drive- Tata Bolt provides three modes viz. Sport, Economy and City.

Choose any mode and enjoy the ride as the mode you select helps ECU (Engine Control Unit) to adjust automatically to optimize engine performance.
Sports mode can be used on express where you will  get more freedom to drive  without  hassles.
Economy mode will reduce throttle (accelerator) response and will help you ride with less acceleration and smoothly. Economy mode will also help you out with low usage of fuel by up-shifting method.In a city like Mumbai Economy mode will suit the best.

Music System

zest-Interior-1-LTata Bolt features Harman Kardon® infotainment system and if the sources are believed, it took 2 years of rigorous work by the Harman engineers to create perfect infotainment system which complements the Bolt.
Harman Kardon® made sure that TATA’s ConnectNext principle comes true to its essence. It was a brilliant decision by Tata Motors to opt to Harman Kardon® Acoustics and infotainment. Their partnership ensured that the consumer gets the best of both world experiences.

Harman Kardon® infotainment system features :

tata-bolt-3

5-inch touchscreen for better multimedia and tactile(touch) experience.
Supports USB, Bluetooth, Auxiliary audio & Smart phones with special apps.
Better voice recognition.
Social media features and touch phone controlled interface.
Harman Kardon® has integrated some Industry leading smartphone supporting phone enabled navigation, internet radio and podcasts for more better  connected driving experience.
Infotainment system will support smartphone based remote control for rear seat passengers and Smartphone based Navigation screen mirroring.
Harman Kardon® has ensured that Bolt customers will experience top-notch listening experience with acoustics solutions including microphones and speakers.

Turbo Charged Engine

Tata-Bolt-revotron-engine (2)tata-bolt-revetron-engine-petrolBolt is installed with 1.2 litre Revotron motorpower of 90 PS and torque of 140 Nm between 1500-4000 RP and nd max power of 90 PS @ 5000 RPM  with 4 cylinders. There would be another version of Bolt which is a diesel variant with 1.3 litre Quadrajet engine. The modern water-cooled turbo-charger, with its low inertia wheel, provides a faster response for a flat, seamless segment-highest torque density, which is kicked in at very low RPM and delivered over a wide range of revolutions, feeding the vehicle with raw power continuously. This translates into a better drive experience and enhanced maneuverability on city roads as well as highways. A built-in catalytic converter reduces toxic emissions. The toxic pollutants in the exhaust gas are turned into less harmful particles. Thereby, minimizing the harm caused to the environment
Tata-Motors-Revotron-Lab-schematic-front-three-quartersThe engine is turbocharged similar to the Tata Zest which was launched earlier by Tata Motors.
The new petrol engines have been developed indigenously by Tata Motors research and development team in collaboration with strategic partners such as AVL from Austria, Germany’s Bosch and US-based Honeywell. Tested extensively in England and South Korea, these multi-point engines are fuel-efficient.The passenger car market is looking up in the last couple of months. With the extension of tax rebates and improvement in business sentiment, the automotive segment is poised to do well,” said Ashesh Dhar, National Sales Head, South and East, Passenger Vehicles.

Speaking at an event organised here to showcase its new Revotron engines, he said the automaker will play a bigger role in the petrol-powered car segment with the launch of Zest and Bolt. The company also plans to export these engines. It has launched Revotron Labs in 15 cities in busy locations such as malls to showcase the new family of engines.

03tata-bolt-zest5TPMS: Its Tyre  pressure monitoring system. It shows all tyres pressure status on a miniscule screen on the right side of the dashboard .The system works like this it gathers accurate pressure data directly from the tyre valves via wireless sensors. It helps with flat tyre prevention, tyre wear reduction and contributes to high impact fuel savings, by ensuring that tyres operate in optimal conditions.It will help to mitigate the risk of accidents caused by tyres. It also includes locking mechanism to prevent theft.

 

Safety

The advanced ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic brake-force distribution) and CSC (Corner stability Control) ensures your safety in case of emergency braking by sensing the wheel speed, and prevents wheel lock-up while braking, thus maintaining directional control. CSC further improves safety while negotiating tight corners.

The front brakes are Disc brakes and the rear brakes are Drum brakes .

I will take you on ride to give you the BOLT feeling as you will know premium interiors of the car that are stylish and sleek designed.

The dashboard looks very attractive and appealing.The steering wheel is excellent to hold.The cabin is spacious and gives enough leg space.

EPAS(Electric Power Assisted Steering) with speed sensitivity  and active return function. This feature helps you steer with control on unstable or twisting roads.

Smartphone enabled navigation from MAPMYINDIA™- This feature will help customers get a MapmyIndia Navigation app specially coded for integration between the user’s phone and the in-dash screen.Basically it is using a technology that enables the MapmyIndia navigation application layer in the user’s smartphone to sync with the car head unit.

Advance voice command recognition – It allows you to control many multimedia functions through voice commands i.e. to make calls ,change tracks,control AC

SMS notifications and read outs- ( Function enabled only if supported by Bluetooth profile of the connected phone) –No more distraction Incoming SMS and new notifications will be read out

Speed sensitive auto volume control- Tied into the speedometer, these circuits make incremental volume changes over the vehicle’s speed range. It’s a handy feature that saves you the trouble of adjusting the volume manually, as may be necessary as the background wind and road noise increase profoundly with speed

Video Playback and Image viewing option  on the touchscreen via USB and SD Card

Driver Seat adjustment-You can adjust the height of the driver’s seat.Its unique feature that  I found unlike other hatchbacks.

Fully automatic AC control on the touchscreen-Interesting feature that controls the AC directly by the touch.

Geo responders for a smooth ride and sound isolators for quiet cabin

petrol-and-diesel-engine (2)Body hugging rugby shoulder seats  – The wide seats ensure you get ample of back support and you can relax and lay down stress free. You get comfy feel.

It was meaningful interaction and gained insights of powerful changing ideas. This year the participants were from all diversified field from scientist, newbie writers, bloggers, inspiring leaders and artists etc.

INKlive2014_banner

I  attended the workshop held by Dell. Dell partnered with INKtalks .Dell India, India’s leading end-to-end technology solutions provider announces the launch of their ‘Dell Campassadors’ program and a strategic partnership with INKtalks, an organization which aims to inspire youth, particularly in emerging economies. The association was born out of Dell’s dedicated focus towards the college student community, who not only exhibits a dynamic use of personal technology, but is also advocates for the adoption of new technologies. With this partnership, Dell aims to engage college students through campus ambassadors in a year-long conversation with Dell & INKtalks to foster a strong sense of social orientation and bring student communities together to share knowledge and ideas with peers and work on collaborative projects, all to prepare them for real life challenges.

The session was “how to create you brand in social media”. It was much awaited, enthralling and engrossing workshop.

Lakshmi Pratury, Host and Curator, INKtalks said, “INKtalks is about opening up the imagination of the youth through stories and equip them to create an impact in the world around them.  We are thrilled to partner with Dell to take our ideas to the student community at large and get them involved in activities throughout the year.  We look forward to engaging with Dell Campassadors who will champion the interaction with their peers, thousands of students in campuses around the country, and catalyze their exposure to INKtalks to help them realizing their imagination into an impact to the society. When we combine the technology outreach of Dell with the projects pioneered by INK, we will have a youth community that can use the technology to make a difference in the communities that they inhabit.”
