General Motors India is set to begin production of export vehicles at its plant in Talegaon in the second half of 2014, with sales commencing in Chile in the first quarter of 2015.

Its first export model will be the left-hand-drive version of the Chevrolet Beat. The fuel-efficient smart city car is already built and sold in many markets around the world.

“The exports will create more employment opportunities within GM India and the supplier community while helping improve capacity utilisation at the Talegaon Plant,” Arvind Saxena, President and Managing Director, GM India, said.

Introduced in India in 2010, and available with gasoline and diesel engines, the Chevrolet Beat is GM India’s best-selling model.
