General Motors India has sold 7,048 vehicles in the month of September 2013 against 7,403 units sold in the corresponding period last year. These included 2,826 units of Beat, 1,894 units of Chevrolet Sail and 1,543 units of Chevrolet Enjoy.
Commenting on the sales performance, Mr. P. Balendran, Vice President, GM India 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, we expect the market to show some improvement closer to the festive season.”
