Jammu, Aug 25: General Motors India today launched Chevrolet Beat Diesel, India’s most fuel efficient car at a ceremony here today.
GM India Vice President, Marketing, Sales and After Sales, Sumit Sawhney, presided over the function.
The all-new Beat Diesel in its segment sports 1.0 XSDE SMARTECH engine has been developed specifically for India by the GM Technical Centre in Bangalore in collaboration with GM Power-train Europe.
“Offering a diesel engine developed for Indian consumers in our most popular model is a momentous achievement for GM India,” said Slym at the launch.
“We are confident that with its best-in-segment design, performance and safety, the Beat Diesel will set a new industry benchmark and be a winner with local car buyers.”
The Beat Diesel’s three-cylinder DOHC engine features state-of-the-art Common Rail Fuel Injection technology for outstanding emission performance and fuel economy. Its electrically controlled throttle body further reduces carbon emissions.
The engine’s Fixed Geometry Turbocharger with vacuum operated waste-gate ensures efficient operation.
As an added benefit, the engine is the quietest powerplant in its segment and provides outstanding performance in stop-and-go traffic conditions.
It also incorporates an advanced technology maintenance free timing chain drive system and added anti-corrosion protection. The engine oil only needs to be changed every 15,000 km or 1.5 years, for lower maintenance costs.
The Beat Diesel’s SMARTECH engine is complemented by a High Torque Transmission that offers smooth, effortless gear changes. Its hydraulic clutch requires extremely low pedal effort. The Smart Engine and Clutch Protection Mode minimises clutch wear while further improving fuel efficiency.
