     Chevrolet will launch the LPG variant and a Diesel powered Beat small car in Indian market by this year end. Chevrolet Beat LPG was spied during its test run near its factory at Talegon.

     General Motors has invested Rs 5000 crores for setting up its new engine plant which will be operational by November this year. The plant will have a capacity of 1,60,000 engines per year manufacturing both Petrol and Diesel power trains.

     The small diesel engine which will be fit into the Beat will be manufactured in the same plant. The engine will use 1.3L Multi Jet technology with one cylinder less. This makes the engine to be under 1.0L and hence lighter. It is expected to deliver power of 55 to 60 bhp which will be very good for a small car.

  1. It will be great if India focuses on Diesel cars like Chevrolet Beat, as Indians are fed of rising petrol prices and there is no hope of any slowing down in this petrol prices so its better to switch to diesel oriented automotive. It is also very economical and environment friendly.
