General Motors India plans a Spark version with an 800 cc petrol engine. It will challenge the mighty little Alto from Maruti Suzuki and the still smaller Nano from Tata Motors.
“The 800 cc Spark is on the drawing board,” P Balendran, vice-president of General Motors India told Financial Chronicle.
But there is a caveat: if 1,000 cc Spark as well as the just introduced 1,200 cc Beat sell well this year, the 800 cc Spark may not happen, indicating that the lower-engine capacity version is just rearguard action in the event of the other models not doing well.
“If we achieve the desired volumes, (with the Beat and the Spark), we will not foray into the 800 cc category,” Balendran said. Source
