I would rate //M's info on Bolt more reliable. And, if that is Tata's strategy regarding the Bolt (as per to //M's info) , then I would love to see the Bolt not before November. Wish the Zest a grand success.

Tata should be doing a all-guns-blazing media event to launch the Zest to push the interest and enthusiasm even further.
NDTV has a live-update page at http://auto.ndtv.com/news/tata-zest-...overage-634439.

The event was supposed to start at 12.30 pm. No updates yet, though!

Just checked the Twitter handle of the Zest, they have started covering the event live on Twitter.
This is the last tweet with the event start images:

Well that can happen, if the Zest sells more than Tata's expectations. If the Zest makes good numbers, Tata should focus more on the deliveries so that it doesn't goes the Ford EcoSport way. It seems that the Zest is the single most important product for Tata now. IMO Tata will not be prioritize the Bolt over the Zest. Only if the Zest fails to make a mark, Tata will have to pull up their socks and launch the Bolt competitively.

From the variants - suffixes stated and posts earlier on this forum, does this mean there is only 1 variant offered with the AMT i.e. XMA ?
