New Delhi: General Motors India on 21 May said it will launch a diesel variant of its premium sedan Chevrolet Optra in the first week of June.
“The common rail diesel variant would be powered by a 2.0 litre engine and would be competitively priced to take-on competition,” GM India Vice President P. Balendran told PTI.
He, however, refused to comment on the pricing of the first diesel offering in the Optra range. The diesel variant would be in direct competition with Skoda Octavia, which is being sold in a range of Rs 11.35 lakh to Rs 14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Chevrolet diesel Optra would be rolled out of GM’s Halol facility in Gujarat, he added.
