Chevrolet India has been doing really good in sales number with its new and stunning small car the Chevrolet Beat. Chevrolet has been successful in offering value for money to a price sensitive economy like India, which is why Chevy Beat is able to compete so well in such a crowded small hatchback car segment in India. To further strengthen the value-for-money factor in it, Chevrolet Beat will be launched with factory fitted LPG Kit by the end of year 2010.
Recently Chevrolet has launched its sedan Chevrolet AVEO CNG in India. The choice of operating a car on cheaper and cleaner fuels like CNG and LPG works really well for car buyers who are concerned about the high running costs of the petrol cars.
The very obvious benefits of a factory fitted LPG / CNG kit is that the kit is more reliable, tested for quality and safety standards and does not void the warranty of the engine unlike after-market LPG / CNG kits. Also the engine may be adversely affected with an after-market kit as the engine might not have been designed keeping the LPG / CNG fuel in mind.
The factory fitted kits are safety tested and the suspension of the cars are also modified accordingly to bear the extra weight at the rear which is added because of heavy LPG / CNG Cylinder. This suspension modifications greatly improves the handling of the car. We hope the Chevrolet Beat LPG variant will help the Beat sales to rise even more.
