Tata Zest and Bolt websites live, Tata Motors’ new car launches near

Tata Zest and Bolt were introduced just in time for 2014 Delhi Auto expo when it was shown to the public as well. Tata’s newest sedan and hatchback isn’t looking to replace existing models in the same segment but will be introduced alongside. The company isn’t troubled by the prospect of cannibalising as each car carves it’s place in a competitive segment.

Tata Zest and Bolt websites are both live now and visitors can access necessary information online by connecting through their existing social media accounts or not. There is no clarity on launch date for either the sedan or hatchback as of now.

Tata Zest websiteSpeaking on the occasion of the launch, ­Mr. Ranjit Yadav, President, Passenger Vehicles, Tata Motors, said, “We at Tata Motors are delighted to showcase to the global market the much awaited next generation cars – the ZEST, a stunning and exciting new compact sedan and the BOLT, a dynamic hatch. These cars have been engineered for global markets, through global teams across India, UK and Korea to set new standards in their respective segments. These cars are a true representation of our Horizonext philosophy, with best-in-class offerings for performance that yet offers economy and efficiency.”
