General Motors is planning to upgrade its Tavera model in the Indian market. The model will soon feature a new BS IV compliant engine meeting the new emission norms. The engine will be sourced from Sonalika Group. "We concluded the agreement last week and now have partnered with International Cars and Motors Ltd (ICML) to roll out the BS IV version of Tavera", General Motors India Managing Director Karl Slym said.

The Talegaon unit manufactures both petrol and diesel engines for various models under Chevrolet brand including SUV Captiva, midsize sedan Optra, premium sedan Cruze, midsize sedan Aveo, hatchbacks Aveo U-VA,Spark, Beat and SUV Tavera.
