The highest selling model in the Chevy India line up, the Tavera, will soon get a BSIV engine. General Motors plant in Halol will continue operations only for the production of the Tavera, as the Enjoy production has already been discontinued.

Chevrolet had plans to shut down the Gujarat plant, however, it will now continue to function for production of the Tavera. The MUV at the moment is available only with a BSIII engine, however our sources confirm that it will get a BSIV upgrade, which would then allow Chevy to continue selling it post April 2017. The BSIII will be phased out from India next April and all the passenger cars that currently have only BSIII engines will either have to be phased out or upgrade to BSIV.

The Tavera is the best-selling car in the Chevrolet lineup despite being available in the limited markets due to BSIII restrictions. With the engine upgrade, the MUV will be available in all the metro cities, which should further push its sales. The Tavera with the upgrade can then be on sale till 2019, when the new safety regulations will become applicable.
