Reports on the Indian Autos Blog have suggested that the diesel version of the Chevrolet Beat which has been seen testing and the details of which have been posted on our website in the past is about 8 weeks away from a launch in the market. The Beat is a funky car with edgy styling and internal and external features which are futuristic. The car while being relatively successful, has not garnered in the numbers that GM wants it to. To boost its sales and make it a proper best seller, GM has decided to put in a three cylinder diesel engine. We believe that the Beat deserves better numbers than it does in India. We hope the diesel trick will pull in more to buy the car.
