“Some time in April, we will showcase a production-ready mini electric car in India. But that will not be for immediate sale. This is a step towards introduction of electric vehicles. It is not possible to give an exact time frame. It depends on the market response.”
This is a big news for Indian auto market and also shows a drift towards the inclination and dedication of Indian auto Industry towards developing practical and usable electric cars on large scale. The Indian Union Budget 2011 also announced some policy measures which provide financial and tax sops to Electric Vehicles In India. We are looking forward to more details and announcements in April. As of now, GM has not revealed about the name, model or make of the car.
We can just speculate that the car maybe developed on the popular Chevrolet Beat Platform and may use in-house developed technology and powertrains from General Motors. So Stay tuned until something official is unveiled. You can sign up for our free email newsletter for latest updates.
