The LPG Chevrolet Beat gets the LPG-filler opening right next to the fuel filler lid on the right side of the car. The LPG compliance plate on the car means that the car is only waiting for ARAI approval and once approved would be ready to hit showrooms.
The Chevrolet Beat LPG would be GM India's second small car to come with a LPG option after the Spark LPG. The Beat is doing well in the market place but cannot match sales figure of rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Ford Figo. and GM would be hoping to boost the Beat's sales by offering the LPG version till the Beat diesel comes to take the segment by storm.
The Nissan Micra would also pose a serious threat to the Beat and hence to take on rivals GM India would widen the Beat range in India by offering the LPG version and a diesel version. The LPG version of the car could be launched by October while the Chevrolet Beat diesel could be launched by January 2011.
