Not even a week has passed since Chevrolet unveiled the Chevrolet Beat LPG priced in the band of Rs.4.10 to Rs.4.53 Lakh, this manufacturer has announced of its next offering belonging to the Beat family. What it could be? Its the Chevrolet Beat Diesel with its launch due for coming June 2011. We reported to you earlier in June 2010 when Chevrolet India Vice-President (Sales, Marketing & Services) Ankush Arora talked about launch of Chevrolet Beat diesel in India, which seems to have been well executed and the launch seems to be on track.
The company has announced that Beat would hit the Indian Automobile market by coming June. This will certainly affect the sales of many successfully selling small cars like Nissan Micra, Maruti Ritz, Maruti A-star, Maruti Swift etc. and probably conquer their share over the market.
So now if you are planning to buy a new hatchback its better to wait for another 3-4 months as this wait could eventually transform into a value for money Beat parked inside your garage. General Motors is planning to invest $230 million in the Talegaon plant ramping up its annual production capacity to a whopping 1.50 lakh units.
Both the Indian and European market will welcome the new Beat and with its 1 litre CRDI diesel engine it is supposed to deliver a brilliant mileage which would remain more or less unaffected by the fluctuating oil prices. So we suggest all you buyers to wait for some time and then choose the best of all the hatchbacks and bring one home.
