Commenting on the performance, Mr. P.Balendran, Vice President, General Motors India, said,
“We have been able to sustain the growth primarily due to the encouraging response to Chevrolet Beat. Other carlines like Spark, Cruze and Tavera have also generated substantial volumes for the company. However, unprecedented hikes in interest rates, fuel prices, commodity prices, growing inflation, policy paralysis at the centre and negative market sentiments have combined to wreck havoc in the automobile market. We expect the market to remain tight for at least a couple of months to come.”
