General Motors' Indian showrooms are on a constant decline. Most dealerships are citing operational reasons as a major cause for shutting down outlets. Another reason is the decline in sales of General Motors products in the country.
Previously, General Motors had over 280 showrooms across India. Over the last few months, several dealerships have shut shop and currently, only 223 showrooms are spread across the country.
General Motors has confirmed that they would not be inaugurating any new showrooms. The company's main focus will be to improve customer service and experience in existing outlets. GM will also try and find ways to make operational of current dealerships a bit more easy.
During July 2015, General Motors India made a new investment of Rs. 6,400 crore. The US base carmaker also announced that their Halol facility will halt production and their Talegaon facility will take care of domestic and export demands for General Motors.
General Motors has promised to launch ten products in India within the next 5 years. Recently, General Motors India launched their all-new Trailblazer SUV. This new model is available as a single variant and is priced at Rs. 26.40 ex-showroom (Delhi).
Currently, General Motors offers the Spark, Beat, Sail hatchback, Sail compact sedan, Enjoy, Cruze, Captiva, Tavera, and the Trailblazer. The next products to be introduced in India could be an updated Beat and an all-new compact SUV, specifically for emerging markets.
