Default Re: Tata Bolt 1.2L Revotron : Official Review

I own a Bolt XM Revotron and just completed 6000 km. Initially I was bit skeptical about whether I should go for a Tata product, but the leap of faith paid off. Have nothing to complain about really. The FE has been good so far; it is definitely a comfortable car to drive around. Did receive a couple of calls from prospective customers (referred by my dealer), and most of the inquiries were about fuel efficiency. I am still amazed why is this product not selling? It is such a complete hatch at this price point.

Are you sure on this offer ? What was the valuation given for the trade in car ? The AMC and warranty itself is around 14k. Sounds too good to be true

Swapnil:

Thanks for the link. I almost got a heart attack looking at your post because I had just recently booked the Bolt. This ad is very misleading. In the fine print, it says the offer is basis cash discount + exchange bonus. So the offer is basically a 45k price cut on the XE. This is around the price where it should have been launched.

Anyway I am happy, I got a better offer of 62K + complimentary basic accessories.

Also got a good insurance deal outside for just Rs 8k - comprehensive cover ( not bumper to bumper ) - that would have costed another Rs1400. Not a bad deal I guess.

May I request you to share the details of your Bolt purchase with us so we too can negotiate a deal as sweet as yours?

JD : My deal is a bit vague because it was in exchange to my existing Vista which is a 2nd owner 2009 Aqua QJD.

Let me simplify it for you. For a BOLT, you should be able to get a cash discount of around 40-50k surely. If you can pick up some car from the existing stock, you can bargain a bit more. I am an existing customer of the same dealership ( had picked up a Storme 2 years back ) - so I am assuming they were a bit more flexible for me ( not sure though ). But I also did not shop around flaunting this dealer's offer to other dealers and bargaining more.

apart from this, the dealer was kind enough to allow me to take my own insurance and give me basic accessories like mud flaps, basic rubber mats, perfume and idol complimentary.

TML was kind enough to step in here and there when there were some very minor issues.

Its beyond my understanding as to why Tata decided to make Zest "fully loaded" and keep Bolt bare bones.
I would have been interested if there was a fully loaded Revotron AMT or a Diesel AMT.
Gave this as a written feedback to Concorde Motors Pune.

Tata Motors will be rolling out a Celebration Edition of the Bolt for the festive season ahead. Decked with a kit available at dealer level, the Bolt Celebration Edition will have:

- decals on the doors, hood, roof & pillars,
- a special Celebration Edition badge on the right side C-Pillar,
- a rear spoiler, and
- illuminated scuff plates.

IAB caught the Tata Bolt decked with the Celebration Edition kit at a dealership.

Quote:
After the Zest, the Bolt too will get a special Celebration Edition kit, which is expected to be available at dealerships from October 1 through November 15.

As it is a dealer-level kit, customers can avail the Celebration Edition on all variants of the car.

Indian Autos Blog comes to know that if these accessories are purchased separately, it would cost the buyer about INR 20,000, but when bought as a kit, it is priced at INR 13,000.

Wow, the decals are totally overdone. Not to my taste at all.

Actually the decals are not too bad. Atleast better than the ones MUL dealerships come up with. Would be better if tyres were one size wider with alloys.
