Commenting on the sales performance, Mr. P. Balendran, Vice President, GM India said, "Although we have generated volumes for Chevrolet Enjoy and Beat as expected, the overall numbers inclusive of other models were not on the expected lines as we had temporarily stopped production of Tavera and Diesel versions of Sail HB & NB since June. The market also continues to remain subdued due to high fuel prices, high interest rates, various other structural bottlenecks and macroeconomic uncertainties.”
