Chevrolet Beat highest seller for General Motors India as company grapples with 4.79% sales decline in September 2013
For September 2013, General Motors India sold 7048 vehicles. This equates to 4.79% sales decline for the month when compared to 7,403 units sold in October 2012.
Despite a slow economic period, most automakers are improving sales in slow and steady manner. Chevrolet’s sales capacity does seem to be slightly bruised with their recall issues.
GM India Vice-President P Balendran said: “The market continues to remain depressed due to weak economic conditions, negative market sentiments and various other factors. Although we have generated volumes for the Beat as expected, our overall sales figures are not on the expected lines as we had temporarily stopped production and sale of Tavera.”
“However, the company expects the market to show some improvement closer to the festive season,” he added.
