The chevrolet's dealer told me that "Beat" will make its debut on Delhi Auto Expo 2010.
Surprisingly he wasn't aware that the car will be named as "Matiz" in India, Had some debate on this and then he told that "Beat" will take place of Spark and spark will be introduced in small engine (likely to be 800cc) or the electric variant.

Now I don't know how true it is.

Probably they want to give comfort to the old Matiz owners!! I think, if they make this move, it should pick up. Plus good ASS & Low cost maintenance will push Chevy to a stable position.

Sweet!!

Why does Chevrolet like this colour so much? I hate it!

The rear-door handle has been done quite well.

The pricing of this vehicle will predict it's future. In India many people believe small cars equals to small money and big car equals to big money ( You still have people driving around in Fabias)If it is priced anywhere between 4.5 to 5.5 lakh this will probably encroach upon the sales of the Ritz and the A-Star too!


How to beat it?

Maruti Suzuki: Introduce the jellybean Zen with a 1.3 or a 1.6 within 4 lakhs [lol!]

Honda:Offer a mellow version of the Jazz.

Ford:Get the god damned Focus!!

Fiat:Unleash the Punto!

Hyundai: Naah. You can just carry on selling your CNG fitted Santros.People will buy them anyway.

Wishing Chevrolet success!!

Keep burning asphalt!!

The Chevrolet will surely have a success in its hands. As far as current situation is concerned, Chevrolet is doing pretty well with their Spark, Tavera, Optra Magnum and Aveo.

well, GM needs to give some good appealing car like Beat to attract more buyers in this segment competing with maruti, hyundai and tata as leaders in this small car segment.
