Tata Teases Kite Again, Lionel Messi on the Driver's Seat!

Tata Motors has released a new video related to making of the latest commercial with their new global brand ambassador - ace footballer - Lionel Messi. The video reveals the silhouette of the upcoming hatchback, codenamed Kite, which will sit below the Bolt. The car which is yet to be named, is likely to be revealed in coming weeks while the launch is expected soon after it. The Kite hatch will be followed by its sibling compact sedan. Both the vehicles will be the spiritual successor of Indica eV2 and Indigo eCS, however, it is unlikely that the company will discontinue these two. As these vehicles will cater the fleet customers.

Mechanically, the automaker has not detailed the engines of the upcoming Kite duos. However, the vehicles are said to be powered by a 1.2-liter petrol engine along with a 1.05-liter diesel motor, both 3-cylinder. It is pretty obvious that Kite will have an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) option - Magneti Marelli AMT based on 5-Speed MT aka Tata’s F-Tronic; while 5-Speed manual will be standard to both the motors. The diesel is expected to deliver similar fuel efficiency figures like Maruti Suzuki Celerio’s 800 cc two-cylinder oil burner.
