Smile Chevy Aveo in early 06

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...ow/1143366.cms

"General Motors India (GMIL) plans to launch the Chevy Aveo in early 06. The Aveo, in its hatchback and saloon versions, will hit the roads before the launch of the Spark (a Matiz look-alike) which the US auto major, GM, also plans to launch in India."

2006 car buyers and bike buyers are gonna be mad at what to buy now.

And how many of you would like the Matiz/Spark to reenter?

Surprisingly, this thread has not caught the interest of too many BHPians. Maybe because GM India has been crying out loud about a hatch since 3 years...and we havent seen any so far?

I had talked with GM dealer in pune who told me that Aevo will be launched somewhere around March end/April
It will be good if they can launch it before March

Also Spark is due somewhere in 2007
A lot of Matiz owners are head over heals happy with their car (including my dad) & will love to replace it with spark

The whole of India has seen many "camouflaged to attract" testers....Ford had no such teaser and their car is out. Testing times for GM, indeed!

GM was close to aquiring the Daewoo plant near Delhi that is ready to pump out Matizes. After they lost it, they are back to square 1 now.
