As expected GM is focusing ahead. AVEO and MAGNUM, seems like history for them. They need to get rid of them and focus on the new models. They are indeed very bullish in the entry level segment and have started on a aggressive note by launching BEAT. BEAT Diesel with AT would be an ideal launch in near future.

Spark Electric is a very bold move by GM and all the best wishes to them for taking this initiative. The cutest of cars goes green at last.

CAMARO definitely seems to be a show stopper and GM might want to bring few of those as CBU's for some discerned guys out there.

GM could have atleast tried showcasing the face-lifted Aveo to gain mileage.

Is the Saic partnership influencing lower prices for GM cars in India?

Ritz and Splash are same vehicles, different names. Beat is a different platform (no bashing if I am wrong).

Saw in carwale.com that chevys gonna launch the lumina,
Though highly improbable for india ,but would love to see that car for 13 lacs,though i think the cruze has covered the segment good for chevy.

I have noticed something strange on the cruze wtcc version and the volt. On both cars, the front grills are false, probably they are just stickers. But doesn't such high performance race require extra inlets for air to keep the car cool?

Claimed range on a single charge is 200 kms. Price premium of Rs. 1,00,000 over a regular Spark expected.

What about TCO of these electric vehicles. I guess the batteries are Li ion. What is typical life of these batteries? what about replacement costs?

The Chevy Aveo concept looks amazing. Hope the production version also looks similar.
