GM has unveiled the first two products from its joint venture with SAIC, the Chevy Sail hatchback and the Chevy MPV Concept, at the Auto Expo in New Delhi.
The Sail hatchback is slated to go on sale later this year in emerging markets, like India. The Sail’s exterior get’s Chevy’s trademark dual-port grille adorned with a gold bowtie and the interior features the brand’s dual-cockpit design. The Sail hatchback will be offered with both gasoline and diesel versions of GM India’s latest Smartech engines.
“The Chevrolet Sail hatchback will be a strong addition to GM’s mini-car portfolio in India,” said GM India President and Managing Director Lowell Paddock. “It will bring a new sense of vitality to the biggest, fastest-growing and most competitive segment in the domestic passenger car market.”
The MPV Concept is engineered for the MPV B segment in India and seats up to eight passengers. GM worked with Lotus to tune the chassis of the MPV concept that was also developed for the world’s emerging markets.
“The Chevrolet MPV Concept is designed for those who want a spacious, comfortable and well-styled vehicle to enjoy life with their loved ones,” said Paddock.
