Chevrolet India is trying its best to make a stronger foot hold in India. The company plans to launch more than 5 new products including commercial vehicles by 2012.
Now they’ll launch Beat EV by end-this month followed by Beat Diesel next month. Another big announcement is the Spark 800cc version.
The American automaker will launch an 800cc version of the Spark by the end this year. This would help the company reduce prices of the car 20-30,000 Rupees. The 3-cylinder motor in the Spark 800cc will also be more fuel efficient, something of prime importance to small car buyers.
Add to this, GM India’s research wing’s capability of producing fuel efficient engines like the one they have put together in the form of the S-TEC engine for the Chevrolet Beat, a 800cc low friction, high fuel economy engine could be very much in their cross hairs. Considering the plethora of factors favoring the Spark 800 overall new product, we’re betting on GM India launching the Chevrolet Spark 800 before 2011 rolls into 2012.
We expect killer pricing and the 800cc will take on the Maruti Alto, Hyundai’s yet to be launched small car and Tata Nano.
