JAIPUR - General Motors (GM) India Oct 23 said that it is strengthening its foothold in Rajsthan and will showcase an electric car next year.

It would be an environment-friendly small car, President and Managing Director Karl Slym said, adding that it would be a battery operated car. He said GM India is rapidly expanding its network in the wake of increasing popularity of Chevrolet in India, which recently completed seven years in the country. In a joint collaboration with China’s SAC (Shanghai Auto Car), GM will bring three “value-package” cars, he said.

It would soon be commissioning the power train facility in Talegaon, making the first flexi-engine plant for GM globally wherein both petrol and diesel engines are going to be manufactured together, he said.
