So far the cheapest diesel hatchback cars in India is the Tata Indica eV2 with an ex-showroom price tag of about Rs. 3.95 Lakhs for the base variant. As per the initial reports from Chevrolet, the price of the Beat Diesel will be about 10% to 15% higher than the Beat Petrol version in India, which comes out to be approximately between Rs. 3.8 Lakhs and Rs. 4 Lakh rupees, which is very close to the Tata Indica eV2. This means that if the Chevrolet decides to deliberately keep it more aggressive than eV2, the Chevy Beat Diesel will become the cheapest Diesel hatchback small car in India.
