      GM to Stop Selling Cars in Indian market

      Highlights:

      • Chevrolet brand will be phased out of the market by the end of this year. Citing focus on improving business performance at a global level, GM intends to concentrate its efforts only on key markets around the world.

      • The company also announced transitioning its East and South Africa operations to Isuzu Motors and phasing out the Chevrolet brand in those markets too.

      • The company will now continue to manufacture from its Talegaon plant for exports only.

      • GM India ceased production at its Halol facility in Gujarat on April 28 which has a capacity of over 1,30,000 units annually. Plans are afoot to sell the plant to China's SAIC Motor Corporation

      • GM's market share here reduced to below one percent and with a shaky model line-up

      Sad state of affairs. Being a user of chevrolet brand i.e. spark. It is a solid car, good build quality, no niggles, never left me stranded. Have 4 GM cars in the family 3 spark + 1 beat. The problem is not being India centric. They killed many popular models like cruze by bad management.

      Looks like it is finally curtains for GM in India... A great brand nevertheless however ruined by incorrect and irrelevant decisions taken at higher levels.

      Gm had many good products , their suvs(something like tahoe) would have sold more than fortuners but they were suffering from centralized decision making . Trailblazer was a good alternative to fortuner but was introduced very late, it was well priced for a ckd.

      From the way indian market operates i think 2-3 brands will shut down in 5-10 years. They maybe mitsubishi,isuzu,fiat(may produce only engines) and even vw/skoda/nissan.


      So who will service the mustangs now?

      Due to its similarity with camaro, got confused. Never had interest in muscle cars,so thought both are from chevy.

      You kept waiting so long since your registration at Gearheads just for a query to be asked about Mustang so that you can honour us with your first post?

      I mean why don't you be active here more frequently.
