Earlier last-month, we reported that GM India has commenced the production of the Enjoy MPV at its manufacturing plant in Halol, now the fresh reports emerged suggest that the company is all-set to launch their new Enjoy MPV by the end of this month at aggressive price points. Chevrolet’s main aim would be targeting its rival i,e Maruti Ertiga which has over 5000 units sold every month currently in the Indian market.
Chevrolet Enjoy is originally a chinese van named ‘Hongguang’ which was developed by SAIC-GM-Wuling JV and is almost about 3-years old. When Chevrolet is about to introduce Enjoy into the Indian market, the original van Honguang is set for getting a facelift and unfortunately this facelifted version of the van would not be available in Indian market for now. Chevrolet Enjoy would be the companies first introduction of multi purpose vehicle into the Indian market. The company is expecting to sell 50,000 units per year.
Coming to the technical specifications, it would be powered by 1.4-litre S-TEC petrol mill and a the Fiat sourced 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine. The 1.4-litre S-TEC petrol engine would be able to attain 93bhp and 127Nm of torque while the 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine would be able to produce 88bhp and 200Nm of torque. Along with this, both the engines would be provided with 5-speed manual transmission and a seating capacity of 7-people.
Currently, GM India has no plans of introducing alternative fuel options, they have bright hopes only on the diesel variant, which could be a sold like a hot cakes once launched.
