Chevrolet Beat diesel to carry XSDE nametag

Posted on Apr 8 2011 - 8:58am by Shrawan Raja

Chevrolet Beat TCDiOnCars.in is reporting that the Chevrolet Beat diesel, expected here in June, will carry the XSDE nametag which stands for ‘Xtra Smart Diesel Engine.’

The word “Smart” has appeared twice before on the Beat’s marketing strategy. During the launch last year, three keywords GM described the Beat with were tough, sexy and smart. Two months ago, the Beat received a modified petrol engine capable of handling LPG fuel under the name “Smartech.”

We already know that the 1.0-litre three cylinder motor is a derivative of the  4-cylinder Multi-jet engine featured on the Indica Vista, Swift and Linea. The engine will generate 57PS of power and 145Nm of torque and its Powertrain development facility in Bangalore has played an important hand in its development.

The locally-manufactured diesel engine, strapped to the Beat, will return close to 24kmpl, sources have told IAB.
