GM India announced that it
will extend production at its Halol Assembly Plant until March 2017 while it
continues to review future options for the site. GM will also produce the
upgraded Tavera at Halol.
According to GM India President and Managing
Director Kaher Kazem, this will provide more time to ensure an orderly
transition for employees, suppliers and other stakeholders as the company
continues to work through options for the facility.
GM India also confirmed that in coming months
it would begin production of the upgraded Tavera at the Halol Assembly Plant. “GM
India will continue with our plan to consolidate manufacturing at our Talegaon
plant,” said Kazem, adding that “We are
exploring a number of options in relation to the Halol site, including its
sale. Selling the plant may include contract manufacturing to ensure continuity
for the upgraded Chevrolet Tavera.”
“Chevrolet is committed to putting our
customers at the centre of everything we do by providing safe, high-quality
vehicles backed by a world-class ownership experience that they expect and deserve,”
he said. GM India recently announced its plan to launch at least five new
Chevrolet models within the space of 24 months, including the new Trailblazer,
new Beat, Essentia new Cruze and Beat Activ.
