Chevrolet Sail production from Shanghai GM to Opel a wild guess only

Opel has become a worry wart for General Motors and the car brand is in no mood to do some work on it. One these lines, GM has reportedly silenced all speculation regarding shifting of production of Chevrolet Sail sedan and Chevrolet Sail hatchback to Opel. Notably, the brand has been on a ventilator across globe and the American car maker GM seems to be finding ways to improve its position but not at the cost of its cars. However, as per the latest updates GM will not be shifting production of Chevrolet Sail sedan or Chevrolet Sail hatchback to Opel units in Europe.

Back in India, the Sail sedan and sail hatchback are highly anticipated upcoming cars and both these are expected to be priced low and thus will be sweeping the market in their respective segments. Where the Sail hatchback is expected to be placed below the Chevrolet Beat, the Sail sedan will be put under the price band of Chevrolet Aveo. Meanwhile, other cars including Chevrolet Enjoy MPV is also highly expected to be launched in India soon as it will take on the Maruti Ertiga that is almost dominating the Indian MPV segment and could soon take the title of best selling MPV in India from Toyota Innova.

Talking about Opel, the car brand sold its last car in India back in 2006 and since then the car maker is only providing service and spare parts to the existing Opel car owners. The offering by Opel included Opel Astra, Opel Vectra, Opel Corsa Swing, or Opel Corsa Sail cars that we occasionally come across on Indian roads. Overall, the car brand has not been doing good due to very meek sales in Europe, probably due to ongoing recession and resultant low demand for cars there.
