  • Electronived MPFi engine

    ELECTRONIC TURBOCHARGED MPFi ENGINE

    Power makes a revolutionary statement with India's first 1.2L turbocharged MPFi petrol engine which delivers max torque of 140 Nm @ 1500-4000 RPM and max power of 90 PS @ 5000 RPM.

    The modern water-cooled turbo-charger, with its low inertia wheel, provides a faster response for a flat, seamless segment-highest torque density, which is kicked in at very low RPM and delivered over a wide range of revolutions, feeding the vehicle with raw power continuously. This translates into a better drive experience and enhanced manoeuvrability on city roads as well as highways.

    The most striking aspect of Revotron 1.2T is the turbocharging. To help achieve best-in-class* power and torque, TML tied up with Honeywell Technologies for consultation and development of the turbocharger being used in the engine. Adrenalin rush is guaranteed with the turbo charged performance of Revotron 1.2T

    *Segment/ Class defined as sedans under 4m length.

  • Multi Drive Mode

    MULTI-DRIVE

    Revotron 1.2T comes with the first-in-class* MULTI-DRIVE: Sport, Eco and City. With just one switch, go from raw power to a relaxed drive. The MULTI-DRIVE brings you best of both worlds i.e. mileage and power.

  • ADVANCED CATALYTIC CONVERTER

    ADVANCED CATALYTIC CONVERTER

    A built-in catalytic converter reduces toxic emissions. The toxic pollutants in the exhaust gas are turned into less harmful particles. Thereby, minimising the harm caused to the environment. Truely, perfection gets a coat of green.

*Class is defined as petrol engines with 1.2 L capacity and MPFi technology

  • NEW LIGHTWEIGHT AND POWERFUL ENGINE

    NEW LIGHTWEIGHT AND POWERFUL ENGINE

    A contemporary lightweight design ensures low thermal inertia for efficient engine operation. It also helps in quick warm up which ultimately results in minimum fuel wastage and lower pollutant emission.

  • LOW FRICTION CRANK CASE

    LOW FRICTION CRANK CASE

    A stiffened crank case with an innovative piston concept i.e. asymmetric shape of the piston skirt for weight and friction reduction has been adopted. This leads to low friction and minimised NVH which provides better noise shield.

  • REVOLUTIONARY ECU

    REVOLUTIONARY ECU

    • EMS monitors the Fuel System, turbocharger working, the exhaust gas system, the Purge System, the catalyst, misfire, and Oxygen Sensor. Tata Motors and Bosch have worked together in providing the revolutionary ECU for Revotron 1.2T
    • The function of the ECU (Electronic Control Unit), a part of management system, is to control all the actuators in the engine system to obtain optimum engine operation in terms of fuel consumption, performance, exhaust gas emissions and driving smoothness.
    • Intelligent ECU has an off and on board ambient pressure sensor and boost correction. This enables more precise control of turbo and altitude correction, resulting in comfortable drive even in high-altitude conditions.
    • This intelligent part of Revotron 1.2T enables the car to have a self-diagnosis capacity in order to monitor vehicle status and have  precise control over the vehicle’s performance, throttle and emission
  • DRIVE BY WIRE TECHNOLOGY

    DRIVE BY WIRE TECHNOLOGY

    The throttle of the engine is electronically controlled through the DBW (Drive by Wire) technology. This means a sensor attached to the vehicle calculates the travel of accelerator pedal and transmits the input to ECU which in turn manages the throttle of the vehicle.

  • 8-HOLE FUEL INJECTOR

    8-HOLE FUEL INJECTOR

    Revotron 1.2T is designed to achieve maximum fuel atomisation, resulting in efficient combustion which the output per power stroke. In other words, every drop delivers.

  • CFD OPTIMIZED INTAKE MANIFOLD

    CFD OPTIMIZED INTAKE MANIFOLD

    A well balanced plastic intake manifold along with a tuned (tubular) exhaust provides high low end torque delivery for best performance.

    • Tata Motors have worked closely with AVL for design optimization of Revotron 1.2T. AVL helped TML test these designs through various computational fluid dynamic tests. AVL is world's largest independent company for the development of powertrain systems with internal combustion engines as well as instrumentation and test systems
    • During the development of Revotron 1.2T, TML consulted AVL for the design optimization of the intake manifolds which is responsible to send the air inside the engine cylinders. This results in a better mix of fuel and air that is combusted in the engine.
    • Revotron 1.2T is a turbocharged engine, resulting in high density of air being fed during the intake stroke. The intake manifold design had to be laid out keeping this enormous aero load in mind.

  • REVOTRON 1.2T

    • The name Revotron is an amalgamation of Revolution and the French word “tronel”, meaning ‘balance”. It conveys the essence of this engine brand that uses key technological advances to revolutionize and balance great driving maneuverability, without compromising on power or fuel efficiency.
    • The REVOTRON 1.2T has been designed based on extensive feedback from car owners, car enthusiasts and expert drivers from across the globe; observing their driving habits followed by extensive testing in grueling climatic conditions in India as well as in other countries like the UK and Korea.
  • MAKING OF REVOTRON 1.2T

    MAKING OF REVOTRON 1.2T

    • First-in-class* MULTI-DRIVE (Sport Eco City)

      Choose your mode to match the road you’re on and the you’re in. Sport for Power, Eco for mileage and City for a balance between the two

    • First-in-class* 1.2L turbocharged MPFi petrol engine

      More power. Better efficiency. The turbo charger delivers power when you need it the most. Thanks to Revotron 1.2T, you don’t have to be a race car driver to experience it.

    • 300,000 hours of research & developmental testing

      Perfection takes time. And so, 300,000 hours of perfection were spent researching & testing the engine in various geographical locations, under different climate conditions and at various altitudes to ensure you get an engine that performs at its peak no matter what the condition is.

    • Best-in-class* low-end torque of 140 Nm at low 1500 rpm

      What happens when 'fewer gearshifts' & 'quicker acceleration' come together in a car? It makes for the most comfortable drive imaginable. The high torque of 140Nm at a low 1500 RPM of the Revotron gives you just that. So, get in and get off the block before anyone else.

    • International collaboration with Global design team
      • Setting a new benchmark for petrol engine technology, best minds from across the globe have come together to design this revolutionary engine.
      • Revotron 1.2T is the result of these strenuous joint efforts between Tata Motors and its global technology partners. Benchmark inputs were sought from renowned global players in the area of combustion, boosting, friction, calibration so as to deliver class leading performance.
      • Global engine consultant (AVL, Austria), key technology partners namely Bosch, Honeywell, Mahle, INA have closely worked with their latest technology.
      • Engine has been also tested for global standards along with car by TEnergy of Korea to ensure that the product meets stated objective.
