The global automotive giant General Motors made its presence felt in the Indian market with the introduction of the German-engineered Opel Astra car.
The Opel Astra was adjudged the Car of the Year 1997 by Business Standard Motoring, one of India’s leading business publications, and more recently in a commercial brand survey conducted by an Indian business management magazine, it was adjudged the Top Automotive Brand.
In January 2000 General Motors India Ltd launched the Opel Corsa, which is now available in four variants. The Corsa, in a three-box version and specially made for India, was designed by General Motor’s Brazilian subsidiary and is sold there under the name of Chevrolet.
In July 2001 GM India launched the Opel Swing. This proved to be an instant hit and is said to have sold more than 200 units within first three weeks of its launch. GM India has always been at the forefront of technological changes aimed at continously improving the product based on customer feedback.
GM India has brought the latest manufacturing processes and human factor practices to its Halol plant and, therefore, is the benchmark for advanced technologies in the Indian automotive industry.
GM India’s dealer network and after-sales support system are effectively functional and provide good support for customers after they purchase the product and help assure total customer satisfaction and enthusiasm.
