Jammu: General Motors India on Friday launched Chevrolet Sail in Jammu.
"We have launched the Chevrolet Sail Premium Sedan in Jammu on Friday. The premium sedan takes styling, comfort, performance and safety in its segment to a new level", President and Managing Director of GM India, Lowell Paddock told reporters here.
The Sail is built on a new global passenger car platform created especially for fast-growing emerging markets, he said adding that engineers at the GM Technical Center-India in Bangalore spent nearly two years refining the platform for India to ensure that it would meet the requirements of the local market and car buyers.
"The eagerly anticipated Sail is an important addition to GM?s sedan line-up in India. It competes in one of the largest and fastest-growing segments," said Paddock.
"The Sail embodies the bold pioneering spirit and ingenuity that have become the hallmark of Chevrolet," he said.
The Chevrolet Sail is available in seven exterior colours: Velvet Red, Switchblade Silver, Summit White, Caviar Black, Linen Beige, Sandrift Grey and Misty Lake, he added.
"The Sail's interior combines comfort and ergonomic convenience. Its Chevrolet Corvette-inspired dual cockpit design incorporates well-supported seats and fold-away rear arm-rests", he added.
The 'Rising Sun' instrument cluster complements a luxuriously blended two-tone interior with highlights in silver and chrome, Paddock said.
The sedan's high roof design offers ample headroom even for taller passengers, he added and further said Smart and well-thought-out storage spaces as well as a spacious boot provide room for passengers to stow their belongings for a daily commute or weekend trip.
