Sources have told Indian Autos Blog that General Motors is planning a new Tavera for India this year. Last year we reported that the new Tavera will utilize Sonalika’ CRDI engine on the BS4 Tavera. This could be launched by the end of 2011.

2011 Chevrolet Tavera

Above is a speculative impression of the new Tavera by Shoeb R Kalania.

GM will fit the Tavera with a 2-liter Sonalika turbocharged CRDI engine producing 100bhp.

Changes on the refreshed Tavera include new alloys, body graphics, new grille, clear lens lamps and minor changes to the interior. The facelifted model might debut the Sonalika CRDI engine as well as host the existing 2.5 L Direct Injection Turbo Diesel for rural markets. It is not clear what the company’ plan is with dual engines, but we’ll soon find out. Stay tuned to IAB.

    The Tavera sells in many South Asian countries as the Panther…

    The panther has recently received a facelift.. with a refreshed engine, new exteriors, grill, all new interiors and so on…
    What we can expect is that the India spec Tavera could receive all those changes.
    with minor tweaks to suit Indian conditions. Also the Sonalika engine (powers the Rhino) is known to be steady.
    Thus GM might see good volumes coming out of Tavera, while the customers and taxi and cab operators will get another option to choose from. (since the existing Tavera is no more on sale, in the metro’s)
