Offically launch date of Chevrolet Beat Diesel

The grapevine has it that the Chevrolet Beat Diesel will officially be launched on the 15th of July, after months of testing on Indian roads.

Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Beat Diesel is expected to be a price warrior, and is set to become one of the least priced diesel hatchbacks in India, thus giving General Motors India a solid chance to boost Beat volumes. The Chevrolet Beat Diesel could be available in three variants. The base variant, a mid level variant and a top end variant.

  • The base variant is expected to be a bare bones affair and could arrive with a price tag under 4 Lakh Rupees, Ex-showroom Delhi. 
  • The mid level variant, which will get a few more creature comforts but miss out on the safety kit like airbags and ABS is expected to be priced around 4.4-4.5 Lakhs ex-showroom
  • the top end version with all the bells and whistles like automatic climate control, airbags and ABS could sell just under 5 Lakhs, ex-showroom.
These prices obviously make the Beat Diesel look quite tantalizing for the small family, for whom spacious interiors might not be a prime requirement. By undercutting it’s rival(Read the Figo) by a good 50-60 thousand rupees, the Beat Diesel with a 936cc CRDI engine producing 57 Bhp and 160 Nm looks like a solid bet as an entry level diesel hatchback. Now, time to sit back and wait for the official launch even as we’ve revealed most of specifications and price points that the Beat Diesel will come with.
