  1. Congrats.

     

    Good Choice, Beat is stunner in the small car segment. No one have designed such a agressive small car.

     

    Green is very good color, I like the Super red.

     

    People used to do modification for there cars for looks.For Beat it's not required.

  2. I think you guys forgot Skoda! They managed a 183% increase year on year! Leading their team were all their 3 cars selling really well - Fabia' date=' Laura and Superb..Once Skoda brings in a new sedan to replace Octavia, then more sales guaranteed! [/quote']

     

    Can any one get the brake down of skoda sales. In Skoda press release they have menstioned only 183 % increase. Where is the brake down sales smiley7.gif ?

  3. Honda just 2% increase: 

     City: 3856; Civic: 551; Accord: 172; Jazz: 546. There were no dispatches for Honda CR-V during November 09.

     

    City is the only is doing well for honda. They have alredy sold 50000 units from the launch.

    Civic impressed numbers after cruze launch also.I thought it will come down.

    Jazz cant go up from 500 numbers.

    CR-V what happend smiley11.gif... ?

  4. Here is the GM sales brake up:

    Spark 4202, Tavera 1264, UVA 524, Aveo 412, Cruze 518, Optra 114 & captiva 84.

    Spark going in good number month by month. It got 3rd yes JDP IQS award.

    Tavera same range cant compete with innova they will not faceout this.
    UVA, Aveo, Optra & Captiva no improvement.

    CRUZE desent number but expected 600. GM still need to work out on Cruze.

     

  5. Yes this sure a U-VA replacement in India.I heard some where it's code name is T300. Like Cruze J300 , M300 Beat from 300 series car has Karl sylm has told in the Cruze launch.

    Looks too good. All new chevy are getting very awsome interrious.Steering is form Cruze & meter cluster is modified from Beat. IP looks very promising have wait & watch is that same come to india.

     

    Exteriors

     

    Yes mirrors are form Cruze. It is mush bigger then the current U-VA, may be same has Honda Jazz. It amy compet with I20, Fabia, Jazz.

    Tail lamps looks like mdoifed form beat. Rear door too i guess seeing the picture.

  6. i have finally booked my new car - Cruze in white colour.

    When is the delivery of your car ?

    Are you adding any accessories ?

  7. A few days ago GM has backtracked on its board decision to hive off Opel and Vauxhall to Magna' date=' the Canadian auto parts maker and the Russian bank Sberbank. The duo viz. Magna-Sberbank were expected to axe many mainly German autoworker jobs.
    The U turn by GM gave a new hope to the auto workers who had expected job cuts and plant closures. GM had said that it was willing to keep Opel and Vauxhall, two very old brands but restructure them and intending to restart from zero. Yesterday GM announced a job cut of about 10,000 mostly in Opel, Germany and plant closures.It has said that its plan is similar to that of Magna -Sberbank.
    Thousands from the 25000 workers of GM, Germany's (Opel) operations gathered outside the Ruesselsheim factory to protest against GM's refusal to sell its European operations. [/quote']

    Magna-Sberbank also had the plans to cut the jobs of 5000 in the opel.

    Come to the GM to retain the Opel. I think it is wise decision. Bcoz GME is the very important for the product development & plat form. With out opel they cant do the business in Europe. Bocz american's work in GM only Opel & GMDAT will work for the global cars..

  8. JDrive which would you go for > laura or cruze ? considering budget for around 15 lacks..

     

    i dont really need diesel.. car will travel about less then 40 km a day!

    cruze is not giving petrol!

    so what should i do  > base model > laura 1.8tsi or cruze top end model ?

    help me decide plz

    thanx

    Make a priority list of your requirements and see what fits the best.

    I suggest you take test drive for both and see what is comfortable for you and also wait to see how market responds to Cruze.

     

    If you are entirely an enthusiast driver and not concerned about petrol/ diesel or FE' date=' 1.8 TSI is good option. It is fastest in the block for sure.

     

    I wd have personally liked 1.8 TSI Elegance version for the interiors and other features but it curently comes only in the basic ambiente version.

     

    Cruze LTZ is newer, maybe arguably better looking and will have new features that may be missing in TSI. ( Sunroof, PEPS etc)

     

    Laura commands better brand value but poor ASS. But still it has decent sales in its fact sheets.  

     

    As far as me, both does not seem to fit my req. I wd go for only Diesel ( long drives once a month). I had high expectations on Cruze but it did not impress me.

    Have you done the TD of Cruze ? If not do the TD first. Then decide which one you will go for... Ya some features are missing.. But some features are first in the segment... it feels like cruze is great VFM for sure.

  10. It's not the "controlling stake " . SAIC wants introduce the Wuling trucks in india & they can export to other markets..  Like REVA & GM India partnership electirc car... Next genaration REVA electric cars will sold through the GM India dealership network.... I dont think they will buy the stake.. If they buy it may be 15 - 25 % stake..
