The Geared For Great Challenge will witness the Petrol variants of the Zest, the Bolt along with petrol and diesel variants of the Tiago tested for high-speed as well as fuel economy. Over 60 professional drivers and auto experts will be participating in this mega event to push these cars to their limits.

“These vehicles and their technologies have been created with global R&D inputs by our talented designers and engineers across our India, UK and Italy centres. With the active role played by our globally leading suppliers, these cars have been developed through our GEN3 new product development process. All our cars go through rigorous validation processes including over four years of extensive simulation, CAE (Computer-aided engineering), NVH (Noise, vibration and harshness) analysis, and physical validation on test-bed as well as on-road, carried out Pan India. Our Revotron and Revotorq engines are built to endure extreme performance. They have been extensively benchmarked with competition engines on various parameters like performance, economy, and refinement. This endurance run will not only prove our belief in our rigid processes but will also highlight the robustness of our cars and powertrains. We look forward to this challenge.” says Dr. Tim Leverton, Head – Advanced and Product Engineering, Tata Motors.
