General Motors is looking to freshen its Indian-market lineup with vehicles that are already for sale just north of the Himalayan mountains. Of course, we’re not talking about Nepal, but China. The first vehicle of what is now a joint venture which will be the Chevrolet Sail – the first model designed by GM’s Chinese partner SAIC Motor Corp. Along with being incredibly frugal, the Sail has the benefit of being sold as a sedan and hatchback.
Following the Sail is expected to be more SGMW-built vehicles from the Land of the Dragon, such as the Chevrolet MPV Concept, which was displayed at the 2012 Dehli Auto Expo. The MPV is actually a Wuling Hong Guang, but it certainly looks like an improvement to a lineup that still sells the old Aveo (which will be replaced by the Sail), old Matiz, the new Spark (calle the Beat), and the very old (yet intermittently revised) Tavera.
