This force General motor’ to discontinue Enjoy and make space for Spin MPV that was showcased at 2016 Auto Expo. The company even launched some special limited editions of the MPV but still it the poor performance remains static. Chevrolet currently has eight in the armory from beat to Trailblazer but none of them is a volume booster.
Chevrolet is fuelled by both petrol and diesel engines- the former is powered by a 1.4 litre that puts out 101bhp power and 132Nm of torque while the diesel takes juice from a 1.2 litre mill which is capable of producing 76bhp and 188Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual gearbox. The MPV is priced between Rs. 6.51 to 9.17 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Last month, sales of Chevrolet stand at 2615 units for the domestic market marking a decline of 20.4 percent. On the contrary, company has exported 1680 units of the MPV registering a massive growth of 320 percent.
