General Motors is planning to bring a new sedan model to Indian shores since a long time. There had been several reports of a new Chevy sedan coming to India especially since Aveo did not bring in the required numbers as expected by the American auto maker. Now the company is planning to introduce Boujon 630 sedan model in the Indian market in association with its Chinese joint venture partner SAIC.

The model is expected to co-exist with existing Aveo sedan as there are no reports of Chevrolet phasing out its entry level model. According to the latest reports from Shanghai Securities News, SAIC-GM-Wuling (SGMW), one of GM China's main joint ventures had recently rolled out its first own-brand Baojun 630 passenger car which the automaker is considering exporting to India and other overseas markets through technology transfer.

General Motors is quite bullish especially in India and China where it taking an aggressive stance. “We will launch a total of six new products and 14 new variants in India in the next two years,” said Karl Slym, president and managing director, General Motors India. Of these six vehicles, four will be passenger cars and two light commercial vehicles, he said. The new Boujon 630 model can be one of the new entrants in the sedan segment and will compete with models like Tata Manza and Swift Dzire.
