I think the launch is close, atleast looks like that from the twitter handle. They even say bookings for the test drive will start soon!

Eagerly waiting to lay my hands on a Zest!

Edit : TaMo has launched some facebook app to tell people which one would suit their personality. The questions aren't direct, they seem to've really made these cars specifically different. (Or does it say Zest for everyone, just check n'tell...)

Yup! I am waiting anxiously too for the launch. I hope they get it right this time and do a good job with the vehicles.
I will definitely go for a test drive.

I spotted the Zest this afternoon at Mahim. Driver started honking like crazy when he saw me clicking pics.

Looks like the alloys have been carried over from the Manza. Looks good nonetheless!

On second thoughts i think it might be the Tata Bolt and not the Figo. Moderators kindly remove/ re position the post if my assumption is correct

Yup i figured that one out and updated my post. Since the mule was spotted in Chennai i thought it was the Figo update. On looking at the Bolt rear view i noticed the similarities

Thanks for reconfirming my suspicion

Head-on the car looks better than any HatchBack in the market today and the Paint quality looks top notch, lets hope the car is too.

I can't wait for the TEAMBHP review, the only one I read these days!

Taking pictures in London is not enough - they need to sell it in London!

If TM wants to prove its worth, it should target Europe which buys a million cars every month. Selling 500 cars in Malta and 200 in Italy isn't going to be enough.

Is TM ready for the challenge? I'm afraid not - TM has already ruled out selling the Bolt and Zest in Europe. Check this:

Did you notice, instead of boring cameos, they are now using the stickers with Zest written all over as cameos. Here are more pics of the car, from Pune:

That front end, headlight & colour combination is such a killer.

I always wanted to scoop a car! Was heading for my exams and this thing just stopped right ahead of me at a red light openly begging for attention.

Any idea why? The camouflage is put so as to conceal the design elements and the car. They've already showcased the production versions. Now they are openly publicizing the name and telling don't click pics!

My be they want to publicize the name of the car, but seemingly the interiors & exteriors panels need not be finalised, due to which the drivers are avoiding being snapped (or told to avoid being snapped, particularly the interiors).
