The North American based automaker Chevrolet has recently presented the MPV Concept and the Sail Hatchback at the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo.
With the Detroit Motor Show coming in pretty fast, the Indian division of General Motors has decided to use the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo in order to reveal two new models, the MPV Concept and the Sail Hatchback, both of them wearing the Chevrolet badges on them. According to the car manufacturer, the Sail Hatchback has been made for emerging markets and will go on sale later this year, while the MPV Concept is targeting the B-Segment, for those who want a spacious and comfortable ride.
“The introduction of the Sail hatchback and MPV Concept demonstrates our commitment to take advantage of the global resources of GM and our partners in India for India. The two products have been tailored for local market conditions and the need of local consumers for economical, user-friendly personal transportation”, said the president and managing director of GM India, Lowell Paddock.
According to Chevrolet, the MPV Concept is a low cost model, developed for emerging markets, which will take on the Toyota Avanza / Nissan Grand Livina. The Chevrolet MPV Concept is using high strength steel for the chassis and it can transport seven or eight people in a flexi-seating setup. The Sail hatchback comes with Chevrolet’s signature styling cues and the body features muscular lines. The model will go on sale later this year but there’s no word yet on the trim levels or prices, or even if the model will be exported outside Asia.
