Chevrolet MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) Enjoy Launch by 2012 End in India

Chennai: US car maker General Motors has lined up a slew of new launches by year-end, including Multi- Purpose Vehicle 'Enjoy', a top company official has said.

General Motors India President and Managing Director Lowell C Paddock said 'Enjoy' would be the first product from their tie-up with Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), China.

"We are exclusively announcing the MPV's name in Chennai. It is Enjoy. We will be introducing it by end of this year. It will be the first product from this tie-up," he told reporters after unveiling the Bharat Stage IV version of SUV Tavera Neo.The car manufacturer had showcased the MPV concept and its hatchback -- Sail -- at Auto Expo 2012 at Delhi earlier this year.

Noting that the vehicle would be manufactured from its Halol plant and engines from Talegoan facility, GM India Vice President (Corporate Affairs) P Balendran said, the company would also introduce its hatchback "Sail" by July."We will be introducing Sail in the Indian market by June or July," he said, adding, this product would also be under their association with SAIC.

He declined to reveal the prices, saying it would be announced during launch. Sail is likely to be priced between Rs 3 lakh and Rs 5 lakh range under the premium hatchback segment, competing with Ford's Figo and Maruti's Swift.

On their plan to foray into the Light Commercial Vehicle segment, Paddock said they are evaluating the options. 'We are working on our LCV plans. Right now, the focus is on sales for this year', he said.

On the market remaining sluggish, Balendran hoped it would improve in the second half of this financial year.'See why the market was dull because interest rates are high. RBI hiked the rates 13 times. Second, fuel prices also went high and negative market sentiment is prevailing. About 85 per cent of our vehicles sold are financed. We hope the market will improve in the second half of this year,' he said.

He also hoped that with inflation coming down in the recent past, the RBI would cut the interest rates.Balendran said in 2011 the company sold 1,11,510 units, a marginal increase from 1,10,710 units sold in 2010.He said GM had sold 1.50 lakh units of Tavera since its launch and hoped it would consolidate their position in the Multi-Utility Vehicle segment.

To a question on whether the present Bharat Stage three version would be phased out, he said it would continue to be sold alongside the Bharat Stage four version. The vehicle price ranges from Rs 7.51 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi) to Rs 10.34 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).

General Motors India currently retails Captiva, Cruze, Tavera, Optra, Aveo U-VA, Spark and Beat. It has invested over Rs 5,000 crore in INdia so far and employs about 4,500 people. It has two manufacturing facilities in Halol in Gujarat and Talegoan in Maharashtra.

The Hyundai Sonata Ambassadors Cup concluded at the Jaipur Polo Ground in the capital today. Chief of Army Staff General VK Singh was the chief guest on the occasion of the final match.

Hyundai Motor India Ltd's (HMIL) association with polo is yet another expression of its commitment to promoting sports in India. Globally Hyundai is associated with many sports; it has tie-ups with top tournaments in football and cricket. The keenly contested tournament spread over four days had six teams vying for the top honors.

Commenting on the polo tournament, Mr. Arvind Saxena, Director, Marketing and Sales, HMIL said, "We are delighted to associate with the Indian Polo Association for the Hyundai Sonata Ambassadors Cup 2012. The Sonata is a premium offering from Hyundai, tie-up with the Indian Polo Association that promotes a fine sport like polo provides a great match for both the Sonata and polo."

Giving company to the impressive Sonata at the venue was the luxury SUV Santa Fe and segment leader Verna. Also present were the international three-door Veloster and the yet-to-be-launched Elantra in the executive segment.

Besides the Hyundai Sonata team the five other teams that competed in the tournament were Jindal Steel and Power, Vayamtech, Hyatt Regency, Black Dog and Sahgal Stud/APRC. The final match on a Sunday afternoon drew a large number of polo enthusiasts to the venue. The impressive tunes from the army band stationed at the grounds lent an air of grandeur to the event.

Like HMIL's recent cars the Sonata too is crafted on the principles of ‘Fluidic Sculpture', where contrasting surfaces create a sense of constant motion. This sixth generation Sonata has interesting features like front and rear seat ventilation, front seat warmers, high intensity Xenon head lamps, cruise control, paddle shift, 10-way adjustable power seat with lumbar support and a 4-way power adjustable front co-driver seat.

The super-efficient 2.4 liter GDi petrol engine is mated to 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions. GDi technology results in enhanced performance and fuel efficiency as the high pressure fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber. The engineering excellence is extended to the suspensions by way of having hi-tech ASD (Amplitude Selective Damper) resulting into improved driving comfort.

Honda Launches New CBR 150R Sports Bike at Rs 1.15 lakh in India

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) is gearing up for the launch of a new Honda CBR 150R Sports Bike next month. The forthcoming product, the country's third largest two-wheeler producer said, would take on Bajaj Auto's freshly-introduced product under the KTM brand.

The CBR 150R of the Japanese subsidiary to be launch in March is priced at about Rs 1,15,000, pitting it directly against the KTM Duke 200 (Rs 117,000). Only last month had Bajaj Auto, India's second largest two-wheeler maker, launched the Austrian-brand street bike.

The New Honda CBR 150R Sports Bike, powered by engine of around 150cc, is a downsized clone of the popular CBR 250R that HMSI sells at little over Rs 145,000. The new bike will also compete against Yamaha's R15 sports bike, which recently received a face-lift and is priced at Rs 107,000.

Though Bajaj's KTM bike offers better power with a slightly bigger engine in straight comparison, HMSI chose to price its CBR 150R at a premium than Yamaha and fractionally lower than KTM Duke.

HMSI had showcased the CBR 150R at the Auto Expo early last month without disclosing price details. The bike, which will be fully built in India, had received strong response from the visitors, according to company officials.

The company hopes to sell more than 3,500 units of the CBR 150R every month after its launch. Currently, Yamaha's R15 version 2.0 clocks sales of around 3,000 units per month.

This will be the third new offering by HMSI this year after it launched a face-lifted Dio with a new engine this month.

The Delhi-based company, which recently overtook Chennai-based TVS Motors to claim the third spot, has lined up seven new products for launch this year.

The company has lined up a face-lifted CBR 250R model for launch by this month-end. The new 2012 edition, also show-cased at the Auto Expo, will be dearer by Rs 1,500 offering a new colour combination.

Naresh Rattan, vice-president, sales and marketing, HMSI said the company was due to launch the CBR 250R shortly in the market. "The new bike has gone under production by the middle of this month," he added.

The CBR 250R has seen some substantial slide in sales in the recent months. The company saw sales of under 140 units of the bike in January as against its usual tally of around 2,500-3,000 units every month.

"There is no dearth of demand for premium priced bikes in India despite a broader slowdown in demand for the commuter bikes witnessed by a few players," Rattan noted. "The market is growing rapidly even is such times."

HMSI is phasing out the current generation of the bike from the distribution channels before trying to launch a face-lifted version.

Further, the company has been facing problems regarding components supplies from Thailand.

"There have been issues relating to components shortage due to the recent floods in Thailand which has impacted local production," revealed Rattan. "This matter is being sorted out before we launch the new version."

Besides the commuter segment bikes, the company is lining up latest versions of imported models, such as the CB1000R and the CBR Fireblade for launch.
