This is part of GM’s strategy to make India an export hub for global markets. We will continue to export Beats to Mexico on a monthly basis.”

The ones exported to Mexico are manufactured at GM India’s plant in Talegaon, Maharashtra. This facility has a production capacity of 1,30,000 vehicles.

Apart from Mexico, GM India exports vehicle to Chile as well. They started this trade in September 2014, when they exported only 1,000 vehicles last year. They aim to sell 20,000 units this year and also plan to export 50,000 units in 2016. This will ensure the full utilisation of their production facility in Maharashtra.
