Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.
New details have emerged on Chevrolet’s plans for the Auto Expo 2014. We had reported earlier that the company would bring the Beat Facelift, apart from a few display only models.
Now Autocar India reports that Chevrolet will conduct a global debut for the Chevrolet Adra concept at the Auto Expo 2014. The Adra concept would be a sub-4meter compact SUV keeping Indian conditions in mind. It will compete with the likes of the Renault Duster and the Ford EcoSport. The Adra concept is based on GM’s Gamma 2 global platform that underpins the Beat, Sonic and the Trax.
The smallest SUV in GM’s arsenal now is the Trax. The Trax, however, is 4.2 meters in length, making it a tad too lengthy to duck under the 4 meter mark, making it ineligible for excise benefits. The report states power for the Adra would come from the same 1.3-liter diesel engine that produces 77 hp that powers the Sail and the Enjoy.
Apart from the Adra concept and the Beat facelift, Chevrolet will display the Chevrolet Sail U-VA accessorized, Chevrolet Sail accessorized, Chevrolet Enjoy accessorized, Chevrolet Corvette, Chevrolet Camaro and Chevrolet Trailblazer.
