GM India restarts Chevrolet Tavera Production

Snapshot: General Motors India that stopped the production of the Tavera MUV about three months back due to issues related to the vehicle's emission standard has now finally resumed the production of the vehicle. General Motors had recalled 1, 14,000 Taveras to fix up the irregularities with the exhaust system, which led to resignation of several senior management officials because of their alleged role in the issue.

General Motors India that stopped the production of the Tavera MUV about three months back due to issues related to the vehicle's emission standard has now finally resumed the production of the vehicle. General Motors had recalled 1, 14,000 Taveras to fix up the irregularities with the exhaust system, which led to resignation of several senior management officials because of their alleged role in the issue.

Recall happened after a surprise inspection by ARAI which found that Tavera's BS III diesel engine were not fulfilling the emission norms. And this led to the halt in production of BS III and BS IV models. As of now General Motors India has received approval for BS III 7,8,9 and 10 seaters of Tavera, approval for BS IV models is still under consideration.

Speaking to Reuters, General Motors India Vice President P. Balendran said, "GM India has already received BS III 7,8,9 and 10 seater type approvals and production has also started. BS IV approval is under process and approval is expected anytime now and will start production soon."

General Motors India that also brought in the entry level MPV Chevrolet Enjoy to India, hasn't received the response the company must have expected from the car, so, reproduction of Tavera might give them a sigh of relief, considering the popularity of Tavera among taxi segment buyers.
