Chevrolet Tavera To Sport BS IV Compliant Sonalika Engines – Specifications & Price


Pollution control has been the sole aim of every major apart from the sales aspect since we all are working towards a healthier and greener future. Innovations are going on to make existing engines better so that they pollute less and joining hands with the companies is the Indian Government which recently announced a new set of emission norms.

BS IV emission norms which went under implementation from 1st April 2010 have hit almost every car manufacturer harder than ever and the new and stricter norms made several car manufacturers numb.An appreciable number of car models belonging to several manufacturers had to be pulled off owing to the fact that none of the above were compliant with the new norms.


One of the major setbacks to General Motors’ subsidiary Chevrolet, was to discontinue the production of its very competitive car Chevrolet Tavera which made the brand’s sales reach the zenith. The car was well loved by the Indian customers and this might be one of the reasons why the firm is bringing the car back to the Indian Automobile market.

General Specifications Of Chevrolet Tavera

Earlier the Tavera was equipped with a 2.5 Litre CRDI diesel engine which failed to comply with the new emission norms and now Sonalika which is a known local company is to source new BS IV compliant engines for the car.

The Sonalika sourced engine is 2.0 Litre CRDI diesel engine which has been manufactured in accordance with these norms.For the final quarter of this year, GM is also planning to launch the Tavera with a 100 BHP engine which the Sonalika Rhino sports.

Price Of Chevrolet Tavera

For the timing no details regarding the price has been revealed but we expect the car to cost a bit more than the previous models as the new BS IV compliant engines are advanced in terms of technology.
