General Motors is planning to replace Aveo with Sail. Soon, Aveo would be pulled off the Indian market. General Motors has stopped production of Aveo in India. Now, it would take around 6-8 months for Sail to fill the vacant space created by Aveo. Sources said that Aveo has failed miserably in the Indian market. The demand of Aveo was very less because it does not have diesel option. Now, General Motors expects that it would capture a big share in the competitive B and C segment market. It would be seen that the Chinese vehicle would become successful in the Indian market or not.

Apart from Chevrolet Sail hatchback, the company is also planning to launch a MPV in India christened Chevrolet Enjoy. The MPV was also displayed at the 2012 Auto Expo, in New Delhi in the month of January. The Auto Expo witnessed an array of MPVs and SUVs, most of which will be launched this year only. Among the new SUVs coming to India, Renault Duster is on the brink of launching on July 4th, 2012. It is a highly anticipated SUV which could prove to be game changer for Renault in India. We at Carkhabri will bring you all the updates from the launch event; stay tuned to know details related to Renault Duster SUV.
