New Delhi, May 2: General Motors India today reported a 66 per cent growth in its sales at 3662 vehicles for April 2006, as against 2214 units for the corresponding period last year.
The total sales comprised 1787 units of Chevrolet Tavera, 310 units of Chevrolet Optra and 1565 units of the Chevrolet Aveo.
The Chevrolet brand grew 82 per cent at 3662 units during April 2006, as against 2009 units for the corresponding period last year.
''The sales of the Chevrolet Tavera and the Chevrolet Optra are to our satisfaction and going forward. The market will see a lot of excitement with our Chevrolet Brand.
