Speaking about the cost-effectiveness of the Enjoy, Lowell Paddock, Managing Director of General Motors India said, “GM India achieved substantial localization at the start of regular production of the Enjoy, which is unprecedented for a global vehicle manufactured in India. This is significant not only for the local economy, but also benefits buyers through a lower cost of ownership as a result of lower parts prices and the ready availability of spare parts.” It starts at a price of Rs. 5.49 lakh and the top end diesel variant is priced at Rs. 7.99 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi). A total of eight trim models of the Chevrolet Enjoy have been launched for the Indian market, in both petrol and diesel options. Apart from two trim models that are available as 8-seater vehicles, all others are 7-seater versions. The Enjoy LS (base variant petrol) starts at Rs. 5.49 lakh, while LT and LS (petrol) are priced at Rs. 6.31 lakh and Rs. 5.54 lakh, respectively. In the diesel category, variants LS and LT are available at Rs. 6.75 lakh and Rs. 7.42 lakh, along with the LTZ at Rs. 7.99 lakh. Even among petrol variants, the LTZ is the top-of-the-line trim model, available for Rs. 6.99 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
