Apart from putting in a diesel engine in the car, the American company also plans to put an 800cc petrol mill into the bonnet and position the car bang opposite the hot selling Alto. Even if Chevrolet manages to steal a small percentage of the Alto’s sales, it would be doing incredible volumes.
Company’s marketing head, P Balendran, told Wheelsunplugged in an interview that the company plans to launch six new models, and 14 fuel variants in the next two years. Of these, three will be from the Chinese SAIC stable. The company plans a new compact car, one sedan and a new version of the Captiva. A pickup van, a small SUV and an MUV are also on the cards.
