Addressing the media at the inauguration of a new dealer showroom in Chennai, Managing Director of GM India, Mr.Karl Slym said the company will launch the BS4-compliant Chevrolet Tavera in the Indian market next year.
The BS4 Tavera will get a 2.0-liter CRDI diesel engine from Sonalika that manages to produce 100PS@4,000 RPM.
The same CRDI engine is presently employed by Sonalika on its Rhino SUV. The engine makes 120PS on that vehicle. General Motors would have requested for a de-tuning to help achieve better fuel economy.
With Toyota, Tata Motors, Maruti and several other car makers interested in exploring the inexpensive MPV market, GM has made the right move by making the Tavera available in major cities where people as well as fleet operators want practical, fuel economical, inexpensive and well-furnished products. General Motors is said to bring more MPVs in the future from the Chinese Wuling brand.
