Indian model would be based on a different platform. 

The hatchback seen here is reportedly the next generation Chevrolet Spark (Chevrolet Beat), which will be unveiled later this year. Launched in early 2010, the Spark will be heading for a full model changeover in markets like the United States and Korea. For the Indian market though, GM has different plans.

The new Spark is based on the same platform as the new Opel Karl.

The new Spark seen here is based on the same platform as the new Opel Karl/Vauxhall Viva, which will be shown for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show next month. For the Indian market though, GM does not plan on bringing this platform, but plans to launch the ‘Amber’ platform developed mainly for emerging markets like Brazil and India.

The Amber platform will spawn a small hatchback, which could replace the Chevrolet Beat in India. However, the Amber-based hatch is not expected to launch before 2017 in India, and until then, GM India will be relying on products like the Beat and Sail to drive volumes in the hatchback segment.

    Not bad but the first gen Beat is just awesome……….. It was like a car century ahead in terms of design.. Even the facelift which is on sale now isn’t great.. Chevrolet has some good cars but they are missing slight things in each car.. Sail twins are not bad but the interiors and quality is putting them down.. Cruze is a macho always, they just have to market it properly.. And the next-gen Cruze (in Cina now) is almost spectacular.. It has got everything to be the leader in its segment.. Don’t know when the GM officials understand what they should be doing..
