Chevrolet, colloquially referred to as Chevy and formally the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Company, is an American automobile division of the American manufacturer General Motors (GM). Louis Chevrolet and ousted General Motors founder William C. Durant started the company on November 3, 1911 as the Chevrolet Motor Car Company. Durant used the Chevrolet Motor Car Company to acquire a controlling stake in General Motors with a reverse merger occurring on May 2, 1918 and propelled himself back to the GM presidency. After Durant’s second ouster in 1919, Alfred Sloan, with his maxim “a car for every purse and purpose,” would pick the Chevrolet brand to become the volume leader in the General Motors family, selling mainstream vehicles to compete with Henry Ford’s Model T in 1919 and overtaking the Model T as the best-selling car in the United States by 1929.
The MPV segment of Indian car market has seen quite a few developments in the past few years. Gone are the days when the Toyota Innova used to be the only, albeit a very sensible, choice for those looking for a comfortable private MPV that has car like dynamics and enough space to carry a large family and its luggage for a weekend trip to the nearby hill station. Chevrolet India, which once tried really hard to project the Tavera as a family car, introduced the Enjoy MPV a couple of years back. However, thanks to van like styling and an almost utilitarian image, the Enjoy failed to penetrate the private MPV space. Now, Chevrolet India plans to launch the Spin MPV to take on the likes of Honda Mobilio RS and Renault Lodgy. It is speculated that the Spin would be sold under the ‘Essentia’ moniker in our car market. Here we have put together all the available Chevrolet Spin India launch details, along with spy pics and information on engine specs, price, etc.
