GM India is scaling down its operations in the country and is set to discontinue three models - Tavera, Sail and the Enjoy MPV due to decline in sales.
The company will stop production of the three models from April 2017. The BS-III Chevrolet Tavera was not sold in the urban markets, though it was the company's best-selling vehicle in the country.
GM India launched the Enjoy MPV back in 2013, and the company will slam the brakes on this MPV as well. Also, in the pipeline is the Sail sedan and the Sail Yuva hatchback which will be discontinued as well.
GM India's current portfolio includes the entry-level Beat hatchback, Cruz sedan and the premium SUV Trailblazer. While GM sells very few volumes of the Trailblazer SUV, the Beat and the Cruz are the two models managing average numbers.
GM is coming up with the Essentia compact sedan, which is based on the Beat hatchback later this year. The company is focusing on the Beat model as it continues to enjoy some amount of popularity in the Indian market.
The company had earlier said it is investing close to $1 billion in India; however, that has been put on the back burner. This reflects that the company wants to be cautious before investing in future models for India.
