GM launches ‘Chevrolet Beat’ in India
New Delhi: US carmaker General Motors on Monday launched its global mini car ‘Chevrolet Beat´ in India priced between Rs3.34 lakh and Rs3.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The 1.2 litre petrol car will be available in three variants.
“With its best-in-segment design, performance and safety, the Beat is destined to become an industry benchmark and a winner among consumers in India," General Motors (GM) India president and managing director Karl Slym told reporters.
He said the company will launch the diesel version of the Beat later this year.
Beat is the second car from GM’s 300 series platform following the launch of its utility vehicle Chevrolet Cruze last year.
The company took 27 months to develop the mini car. It will be launched across 150 countries in the coming months.
Beat will be manufactured at GM India’s Talegaon plant in Maharashtra.
