Right now the first one to roll off the line is “Revotron 1.2T” which is said to produce 85PS @ 5000RPM and 140NM of torque @ 1750-3500RPM in the initial stage. It can be further enhanced depending upon the buyers’ need. To cater the need of fuel efficiency and also to adhere to the driving comfort, the Tata Motors has deployed it with multi-drive mode which will be all at the mercy of car’s driver.
Coming down to weight, India based carmaker says, it is ultimately light in weight despite the use of steel, and is not only rolled out for India, but is applicable to international applications as well.
The Revotron family of engines will be gulped down with 3 and 4 cylinders, says Tata Motors.
Announcing the launch, Mr. Ranjit Yadav, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit said, “Tata Motors passenger vehicles business is making a strategic shift towards a more complete portfolio. The name itself, an amalgamation of Revolution and the French word “Tronel”, meaning ‘balance’, conveys the essence of this engine brand that uses key technological advances to revolutionize and balance great driving maneuverability, without compromising on power of fuel efficiency. We are enhancing our portfolio with the next generation petrol engines – Revotron series.”
