Kathmandu, August 23:

Vijaya Motors Pvt Ltd, sole distributor of General Motors in Nepal, has launched a new car ‘Chevrolet Spark’ in the market.

Manufactured by General Motors India, the small hatch back is available in a 1000cc petrol 8-valve engine that delivers the power of 63 PS and a torque of 90.3 Nm. Its mono form design is claimed to maximise the wheelbase and in turn improves cabin space.

Its body is made of high strength steel, which makes the car lighter and gives the required stability. The new Chevy is available in four variants. The car claims a mileage of 17.85 kmpl, with a top speed of 156 km/hr.

Based on test drive in Delhi, the Spark gives an average mileage of 16-kmpl, said Suren K Bardewa, sales manager at Vijaya Motors. It is rated one of the best in terms of fuel efficiency in its class, he said.
