Chevrolet India

Automobile giant General Motors has launched the diesel variant of the Chevrolet Beat in India.
According to information available on the company's official website, the car will come at a price tag of Rs 4.29 lakh-Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
"Offering a diesel engine developed for Indian consumers in our most popular model is a momentous achievement for the company," General Motors India President & MD Karl Slym told reporters here.
The website says the car comes with a new 1.0-litre engine, made exclusively for India by GM's Technical Centre in Bangalore, in collaboration with GM Powertrain, Europe, that produces a power output of 58.5 PS and a torque of 150 Nm.
The company claims that as per ARAI standards, the engine promises a mileage of 24 kmpl.
The car is available in an impressive range of nine colours. It comes with 14" stylized steel wheel, body coloured bumpers, body color tailgate handle and sporty black spoiler, claims the company.
The car comes with automatic air conditioning, tilt steering, integrated central console and dashboard and a 'best-in-segment' ground clearance of 175 mm.
Till now, the company was selling the Beat in petrol and LPG variants.
The rapidly rising demand for small cars in India coupled with substantially lower running costs of diesel vehicles has spurred car manufacturers to come out with all-new diesel models or fresh diesel variants of existing petrol-run models.
