Revotron : The 3 in 1 engine

Brand : Revotron
Company : Tata Motors

Brand Analysis Count : # 544


Revotron is the new hope of Tata Motors. Tata Motors which once was the number 2 in the Indian car market, is now finding it difficult to be in the top 5 thanks to the nagging quality issues coupled with a negative brand perception. This brand is another example of  ingredient branding.

But Tatas are known for its resilience and Revotron is the result of a serious introspection and investment in developing an indigenous petrol engine with global standards. And from the media reports , Tata Motors have managed to live up to the high standards set by itself. And after many years, media has been kind to Tata Motors with a fairly good reviews about the engine performance.

The 1.2 Ltr engine is being promoted heavily by Tata Motors ahead of the launch of the two major new products - Tata Bolt and Zest. The Revotron brand is endorsed by the Indian F1 Racing star Narain Karthikeyan.

The USP of the Revotron engine is the 3 driving modes which is usually seen in high end cars. There is a city mode, Eco mode and a Sports mode. For a value-driven brand like Tata Motors, this proposition is a very powerful differentiation.
Platforms and not products are now important to a company's success. For automakers, engines offer the platforms on which many products can be made. Honda has recently demonstrated the power of platform with the diesel IDtec engine.
Tata Motors hope that the better engineered Revotron would help build a better image for the cars produced under it.
