GMI to launch Chevrolet Tavera in 2004

March 15, 2004 16:47 IST

General Motors India on Monday said it would launch Chevrolet Tavera in the second quarter of 2004 to take on competition from multi-purpose vehicles like Scorpio and Qualis.

Despite a lack of "quality" choice, MUV sales touched 83,000 units in 2003, a 47 per cent rise over 2002. Sales in the segment should touch 100,000 units this year, a GMI statement said in New Delhi.

The Tavera will be powered by a diesel engine technology from Isuzu, it said.

More and more people are viewing the MUV as an alternative to car, fuelling growth in the category which is largely dominated by Toyota's Qualis and Mahindra and Mahindra's homegrown Scorpio.

The Indian arm of the world's biggest carmaker would also launch a slew of vehicles under the Chevrolet brand name.

GMI aims to double sales in 2004 over nearly 15,000 units sold in 2003.

The company has sold 5,700 units of premium mid-size car Chevrolet Optra since its launch about six months back.

that looks like a mid ninties suv. poor india......

what is that again? an isuzu???what???
The Aerostar lives!
wow- that has Isuzu Rodeo written all over it.
These types of vehicles are pretty popular in Asia. They're a cross between a MPV - Minivan and an SUV and most of the mainstream Auto maker's in Asia have one of these types of vehicles in their lineup.

Yep, it's an Isuzu Panther in other market's, but you only have to have a look at it to see it shares alot of it's part's with the Isuzu Rodeo. The front light's are a give away.
Just because the headlights are similar (and might be identical), doesn't mean "it shares alot of it's part's [sic] with the Isuzu Rodeo." The Jaguar XJ220 and the Rover 800 shared taillights...but you couldn't make the connection that they "share alot of parts."
wow- that has Isuzu Rodeo written all over it.
it looks a heck of a lot more like the Trooper than a Rodeo, although it's neither one. Rodeos are not that tall.
It looks like the Trooper <_<
I think we can all agree that the looks at least are from a 1990's Isuzu design. Certainly nothing like the Axiom.
