Sunday, July 31, 2011

Recently, Chevrolet Beat Diesel launched in India. The diesel version of Chevrolet Beat is priced between 4.29 - 5.45 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

An online news portal about auto industry -, writes about Chevrolet Beat diesel, “However, seeing the growing demand for diesel cars in the country, GM has now introduced a diesel version of its Beat model, for which a lower capacity engine was specially designed for India application by GM Technical Centre India and GM Power-train Europe.”

Further the news portal adds, “Giving the Chevrolet Beat Diesel life is an all-new 936cc, 3-cylinder diesel engine that pumps out 58.5 PS of power @ 4,000 Rpm as compared to the petrol's 80-odd horses. But while, the power output on this new oil mill may seem a bit inadequate, a robust diesel torque of 150 Nm @ 1750 Rpm and its ARAI certified mileage of 24 km/ltr makes this stylish hatch, a real value for money proposition.”

About the engine of Chevrolet Beat diesel, the news portal writes, “This engine is India specific, and it's not available anywhere else in the world for now. It is set to be the smallest diesel in the Indian passenger car space yet. Although, the overall design and interiors of the Beat Diesel remains identical to its petrol sibling, some minor changes on the new oil burner include its tyre width, that has been downsized from a 170-section on the petrol to a 165-section on the diesel, on identical 14-inch wheels.”

About the price of the car, the news portal writes, “…PS model for 4.29 lakh, the LS for 4.59 lakhs, the LT for 4.99 lakhs and finally the top end LT (optional package) vairant for 5.45 lakhs (all prices are ex-showroom Delhi).” Will the car compete with New Ford Fiesta in Indian market?
