GM India have also introduced a Sail special edition this month.

Sales of the Sail U-VA have never reached its expected levels. From July-December 2013, GM sold an average of 483 units/month of the U-VA, while competitors such as Maruti sold over 15,000 units/month of the Swift. In the middle of last year, GM had to stop production of the Sail U-VA diesel due to certain quality issues. Once production resumed in September 2013, the diesel powered Sail twins were issued a recall.
