American automotive giant General Motors has confirmed that it is working on an upgraded version of the Chevrolet Tavera to help it comply with more stringent emission norms.
Chevrolet had recently axed the upcoming Spin MPV and followed that up by removing the Enjoy MPV from its lineup due to falling sales numbers of MPVs in India. The American car maker also removed the Sail hatchback and sedan from its lineup of cars sold in India.
The biggest change with the facelifted Tavera is going to be under the hood of the vehicle where a new BS-IV compliant engine will generate the power needed for the new car.
The new Tavera will be assembled at the General Motors facility in Halol, Gujarat where production has been extended till March 2017 before the factory is sold off.
The company's plans to upgrade the Tavera should come as no surprise as it is one of three Chevy models that are quite popular in India, the other two being the Beat hatchback and the Cruze sedan.
Chevrolet plans to increase its presence in India by adding 5 new models in the next 5 years including the new Beat, Beat Active soft-roader, Beat Essentia compact sedan along with the new Cruze and the new Trailblazer SUV.
