General Motors India has begun regular shipment of the sedan version of their Chevrolet Beat from their Talegaon plant to Latin American markets. The company added that following the start of production on 5 June, a consignment of 1200 Chevrolet Beat sedans was loaded today for shipment to Latin America.
GM India claims their exports have more than tripled in the past year, with May 2017 recording the brand’s highest monthly vehicle exports at 8,297 units. Earlier this year, GM India began exporting the Chevrolet Beat hatchback to a few Latin American countries which include a few left-hand-drive markets.
Asif Khatri, VP-Manufacturing, GM India, said, “Our Talegaon facility is a key export manufacturing hub for GM. And we are happy with the launch readiness. Our skilled workforce at Talegaon has developed a mindset of zero defect to delight customers. The excellent quality is supported by a classic design, enhanced connectivity options, and superior ride and handling characteristics of the Chevrolet Beat sedan. We are confident that it will help us build on our success in the export markets.”
