GM India Begins Regular Shipment of Chevy Beat Sedan to Latin America
General Motors India announced today that it has begun regular shipment of the sedan version of the Chevrolet Beat, which is shipping from its Talegaon export hub to markets in Latin America.
A consignment of 1,200 Chevrolet Beat sedans was loaded for shipment to Latin America today, following the start of production earlier this month, which began on June 5, 2017.
“Our Talegaon facility is a key export manufacturing hub for GM,” said Asif Khatri, VP of Manufacturing for GM India.

“GM India’s exports have more than tripled in the past year. GM was India’s third largest passenger vehicle exporter in May—recording our highest monthly total of vehicle exports at 8,297 units.”
GM India started exporting the Chevrolet Beat hatchback to Latin American markets earlier this year, where the automaker says that the vehicle exceeded customers’ expectations.
“We are very happy with the launch readiness,” said Khatri. “Our highly skilled and committed workforce at Talegaon has developed a mindset of zero defect to delight customers. The excellent quality is supported by a classic design, enhanced connectivity options, and ride and handling of the Chevrolet Beat sedan and we are confident that it will help us build on our success in the export markets.”
GM India now exports both hatchback and sedan variants of the Chevrolet Beat to a number of left-hand-drive markets located in Latin America.
