General Motors India will roll out multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Enjoy in two months.
Disclosing this at a press conference to launch Chevrolet Sail sedan here on Monday, P. Balendran, Vice- President, said “The vehicle is ready, and its SORP (Start of Regular Production) at the Halol plant, in Gujarat, has commenced”. As the pre-production drives had been completed, Enjoy would now be driven by senior management executives. The management drive, he explained, was a lengthy process as part of which the executives would evaluate it by also driving the competition vehicle.
Enjoy would be competing with Maruti Suzuki’s Ertiga, he said. GM would decide the price at the time of the launch, he added.
Mr. Balendran said Enjoy was likely to have more than 70 per cent local content. The annual capacity of the Halol plant was 85,000 units, and, on completion of the expansion, it would increase to 1.10 lakh. GM India has another plant in Talegaon, Maharashtra, whose capacity is 1.40 lakh units.
Sail sedan would be “competing in one of the largest and fastest growing segments”, which is dominated by Maruti Suzuki’s Swift.
GM India would offer both petrol and diesel variants of the sedan.
While the ex-showroom price of the petrol versions in Chennai would be Rs.4.9-6.41 lakh, that of the diesel versions Rs.6.29-7.5 lakh.
