American automaker Chevrolet had earlier shown interest in introducing the Spin MPV in the Indian market next year. However, the company has confirmed that it will not be launching the Spin MPV here and shall focus more on the growing segments like the compact sedan, hatchbacks and SUVs.

The declining demand for MPVs has prompted Chevrolet to back out from launching the Spin MPV in India. The Ertiga MPV from Maruti Suzuki and the Toyota Innova have been the only ones who have been successful in holding their ground. In the past, Chevrolet had introduced the Enjoy MPV never really took off. Taking cues, the company has decided against introducing the Spin MPV in India. In recent times, models like Evalia, Mobilio and the Lodgy from Nissan, Honda and Renault respectively failed to make a mark in MPV segment.


Chevrolet will instead introduce the Beat Activ hatchback and the Essentia compact sedan which were shown as concepts during the 2016 Auto Expo. Apart from these two, the company will also introduce the new Trailblazer, new Beat and the next-gen Cruze in two years.

Speaking about it, Kaher Kazem, GM India President and Managing Director said, “There was an overwhelming response from our Indian stakeholders to the Beat Activ when we revealed it at the Auto Expo in Delhi. As a soft-roader, the vehicle is ready for any adventure or challenge, while its interior ensures the driver remains comfortable and connected.”
