A confirmed report by Kaher Kazem, President and Managing Director, GM India that they are working on an updated version of the Chevrolet Tavera MPV that will come with an updated BS-IV complaint power unit.
As of now, the Tavera is powered by a BS-III engine which does not meet the emission standards set by the Government in metro cities, thus is phased-out from all metro cities. The BS-III engine norms will be discontinued from India next April, therefore, all the passenger cars which are currently on-sale with only BS-III engines will either have to be phased out or upgrade to BS-IV engine.
Reacting to this Government’s emission standards, Chevrolet India has taken this step to allow them to continue selling the Tavera after April 2017. The updated Tavera with BS-VI engine can then be on-sale until 2019, when the new safety regulations will become applicable. The company also confirmed that in coming months it would begin production of the upgraded Tavera at the Halol Assembly Plant, Gujarat.
As far as update is concerned, Chevy is expected to work on minor refresh of Tavera which would comprise of slight cosmetic additions and subtractions along with slight modifications of interiors.
