GM to Ramp Up Component and Passenger Vehicle Shipments from India

Detroit, Michigan-based General Motors which stopped manufacturing passenger vehicles for sale in India, is looking to ramp up component exports from India even as it continues to add new global markets for vehicle shipments from the country.

The company currently exports body panels and engines to Vietnam and Cambodia, and recently started exporting the Beat Notchback to Costa Rica. “Our exports have tripled [increased three times] over the past year and we are very pleased with the acceptance of our products in the export markets,” an official from the company said. In India, GM manufactures vehicles and components at its Talegoaon plant in the western state of Maharashtra.

In 2017, GM ranked 5th in India in terms of passenger vehicle exports. Its hatchback Beat was the highest exported passenger vehicle from India.
