Tata Motors on Monday unveiled in Mumbai the first of its all-new range of petrol engines that will power its future cars. The new engine series branded ‘Revotron’, which is primarily meant for the compact car segment, is developed in collaboration with technology partners Bosch, Honeywell, Mahle and INA.

The company unveiled Revotron 1.2T, the turbo-charged, multi-point fuel-injected petrol engine on Monday and said it would launch a few other variants, smaller as well as larger, over the days to come.

Tata Motors will unveil its new models powered by Revotron engines at the Delhi Auto Expo in the first week of February. Ranjit Yadav, president, Tata Motors, said the company would commercially launch these new cars powered by the new engines this year itself.

“Petrol represents a big opportunity for us. We have 9% market share in the diesel car segment. We should have similar kind of market share in the petrol segment as well,” said Yadav.

The company claimed the new engine would offer better performance, economy and refinement.
