While Chevrolet Beat recorded its highest sales since its launch, Chevrolet Tavera crossed the 2,000 mark again after five years. The March 2012 sales comprised of 5638 units of Chevrolet Beat, 2075 units of Chevrolet Tavera, 107 units of Chevrolet Aveo, 123 units of Chevrolet Optra, 44 units of Chevrolet Captiva, 722 units of Chevrolet Cruze and 1879 units of Chevrolet Spark.
Commenting on the performance, P Balendran, Vice President, General Motors India, said: “The great demand for the Beat and Tavera has boosted our performance in March. The growth was primarily driven by India’s most fuel efficient vehicle, Chevrolet Beat Diesel. While the Tavera has performed phenomenally, we hope the new Chevrolet Tavera Neo 3 BS IV, launched recently in 13 cities, will further strengthen the performance. Our vehicles demonstrate our commitment to fully leverage our resources in India to offer customers new products that meet their unique needs".
