The Tata Bolt was launched in India January 2015 and replaced the aging Tata Indica Vista hatchback. Under the Horizon Next product strategy, the car was designed with the company's new Impact Design philosophy to compete against other hatchbacks like the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10, Honda Brio and the likes. While the car is available in both petrol & diesel engine options, of late, the car has been losing out on the popularity contest. If reports are to be believed, Tata Motors have decided to launch the sports version of the Tata Tiago hatchback with a 120bhp petrol engine.

Although being a great product with capable engines and decent performance, the Bolt hatchback has not been able to generate good sales for the company.
