    Default Tata motors names new car BOLT

    Not even close to Chevy's concept car, but, doesn't bode well for keeping the name.

    GM probably didn't trademark if in India. It is just a concept, and there's nothing saying they have to keep the name if they come out with a similar car.

    I still want a Nano for $4,000. I could buy 10 Nanos, for 1 Volt. Although I'd have to drive much more slowly, and more carefully....

    If the Tata is not sold in the USA it's not an issue. GM can keep the name "Bolt".


    If you look on the USPTO site you can probably find a hundred trademarks for "Diner" If they are in different cities it's fine to name a business the exact same thing as a business in another state or city.

    Oh I hope GM can't use the Bolt name, the name's not one that rolls off the tongue.

    Given Tata's experience with the Nano, they should be calling the new car the "Fire Bolt"/
