NEW DELHI — Driven largely by demand for its Tavera utility vehicle, General Motors Corp.’s Indian unit announced Tuesday that its sales for the month of April had risen 58 percent.
GM India sold 2,214 cars in April, including 1,603 units of the Tavera — which has already crossed the 15,000-unit mark since its launch 11 months ago.
The success in April came on the heels of its highest month of sales to date, 3,516 units in March. GM India recently doubled its production at its plant in the western state of Gujarat to 60,000 vehicles a year.
The wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors also produces and sells its Chevrolet Optra and Opel Corsa sedans. It imports the Opel Vectra and Chevrolet Forester into the Indian market.
