    Bajaj, a company that is bugged by Chinese copy bikes, is planning
    to counter attack. Sources close to Bajaj say the 2-wheeler maker will
    enter the Chinese market with a brand new 125 cc motorcycle, which will
    also be sold in Nigeria.


    • This bike will have a 125 cc engine and will retail at around $500.

    • Bajaj is trying to make use of cheap labor in China, but what
      remains to be seen is whether they will be able to compete with the
      established local brands, who dominate the 2-Wheeler industry in China.

    • Bajaj will introduce the low-cost bike under a different brand name
      to keep their brand image in tact as they have plans for making several
      high capacity bikes for other overseas markets.

    After success of the Pulsar and Discover, Bajaj

    Suzuki has introduced the Splash hatchback in the U.K with a
    1.0-liter engine. Smaller engines emit fewer emissions, which is
    exactly the same intention behind this variant from Suzuki.


    The engine produces 68 bhp and just 120 g/km CO2 emissions enabling it to enjoy lower taxes in the U.K.




     this is exactly the same KB Series engine which Maruti at
    present uses on the A-Star. Data on Splash

    GM will also be launching a LPG version of the Spark and CNG version

    of the Aveo in April and June 2009, respectively. GM is also test

    running six of its different vehicles on bio-diesel. GM has been

    selling a CNG-version of the Optra in select cities.

    We all know that Mitsubishi India has been in doldrums for a long
    time. Its first launch was the Lancer in 1998 which was a good seller
    in the Luxury car segment. The advent of newer cars like Honda City,
    Tata Indigo and many others have dethroned the mighty Lancer. So while
    the rest of the world was getting new updated lancers and the special
    edition ones like the EVO, India was still living with the sixth
    generation Lancer which hardly sells and this is the reason why most of
    HM-Mitsubishi dealers have shifted to serving other manufacturers. In a
    desperate attempt, HM launched the 7th generation lancer in 2007 called
    the Lancer Cedia which also failed in the India, the primary reason
    being Mitsubishi

    The new Tuscon, as seen from these spy
    shots does offer a lot more than the outgoing model. The window line is
    i10 like with a kink at the rear and the rear pillar is reversed like
    the ones on the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Swift.


    The overall styling is a couple of
    notches up with sloping roofline and huge sweptback headlamps making a
    style statement. The Tuscon has got a new identity and is sure to make
    more than a mark on any buyer

    The all new Nissan Teanna coming next year will be be based on the gorgeous Nissan Intima concept.  The Nissan Teanna is a relaxed cruiser and that sets it apart from the Accord and the Camry. The new one is even better with the Intima-inspired styling which has improved on the Nissan Teanna.
