GM India has set an all-time high sales record by selling 11,330 vehicles in March 2010, representing a 127 percent year-over-year growth. The primary force behind the growth was the recently-launched Chevy Beat (known as the Spark elsewhere in the world, U.S. included) as well as the (archaic but trusty) Chevy Spark (known elsewhere in the world as the Daewoo Matiz).
GM says that the Beat “has become the industry benchmark and a winner among consumers in India, with its best-in-segment design, performance and other product attributes.” This news comes to us on the heels of GM India ramping up production by adding second shifts at Halol and Talegaon plants to meet increased demand. The General’s Indian arm is also in the process of expanding its sales and service network across India and intends to have 300 points of sale and an equal amount of authorized service outlets by the end of 2010 (up front the current 206 points of sale and 200 authorized service outlets).
Here’s a model-by-model breakdown of GM India’s sales results for the month of March 2010. We have GM’s press release below the jump.
