Auto | TVS to sell Flame after getting certifications

New Delhi: TVS Motor Co. Ltd will start selling its Flame model once it receives the necessary certifications, the company said in a press release.

TVS, which had been locked in a patent dispute with rival Bajaj Auto Ltd, had been prohibited by the Supreme Court from selling the bike. The company had challenged a patent Bajaj received for its twin spark plug technology.

The apex court on 16 September allowed TVS to commence sales and asked the Madras high court to finish hearing the case by 30 November. A court appointed receiver would keep records of the number of bikes sold pending final resolution of the dispute in order to enable TVS to compensate Bajaj if it loses the case.


GM India, Saic in talks to sell Wuling models

Mumbai/Shanghai: General Motors Co. (GM) is in talks with Chinese partner Saic Motor Corp. to introduce Wuling light commercial vehicles in India, where economic growth is spurring demand for small trucks.

Discussions on models and cooperation between the partners haven’t been completed, Karl Slym, managing director of GM’s India unit, said in New Delhi on Thursday.

GM is considering the Wuling models for India because it is easier for the company to adapt existing platforms and technologies for faster introduction of vehicles, Slym said.

He denied that Saic is buying production facilities from GM in India as previously reported in the Chinese media.
