MotorBeam reports that Tata Motors has unveiled a new compact car in India called the Bolt. This brand isn't sold in the US, but it is sold overseas in emerging markets where everything depends on the price. The car will come with two engine options including a 1.3L diesel producing 75hp and a 1.2L gas engine. Both of the engines use turbochargers and have 5-speed transmissions.

The car looks nice and uses EPAC steering system that is speed sensitive. The car also has next generation ABS and stability control. Other features include new colors, a new 5-inch touchscreen in the dash, and a Bluetooth system with voice control.

The car can also be optioned with navigation maps. The car is design to offer lots of rear headroom in the rear and it has an attractive interior. There is no word on pricing at this time.
