GM India, the completely owned subsidiary of General Motors, has revealed that they have successfully crossed the milestone of manufacturing 100,000th engine from its plant in Talegaon near Pune in Maharashtra. The feat was achieved yesterday, owing to the growing popularity of Chevrolet cars in India.
GM India has achieved this milestone in 2 years since they started manufacturing engines in Talegaon. Chevrolet cars like Beat, Cruze and the newly launched Sail U-VA have pushed sales for GM in the Indian auto industry to a new level.
Commenting on the performance, Mr. Lowell Paddock, President & Managing Director, General Motors India said, “This is a proud moment for us all of us at GM India. Crossing the milestone of producing 100,000 engines at the Powetrain plant is a testament of our commitment to the Indian market. With the launch of the Chevrolet SAIL U-VA and the forthcoming launches of Chevrolet SAIL and Chevrolet Enjoy, we will be stepping up the production at the plant. We look forward to achieving more milestones as we go ahead and offer best-in-segment cars in the Indian automobile market.”
