Chevrolet becomes the official Sponsor of 2 major European Football Clubs

articlesChevrolet being one of the biggest automobile brands in the world decided to collaborate with two of the biggest sport franchises in the world, Manchester United and Liverpool, who are ironically rival clubs playing in the English Premier League.

Chevy and Manchester United:-

In May 2012, Chevrolet replaced Audi as the official car sponsor for one of the biggest football teams, Manchester United. From the 2014-15 season Chevrolet will become the team’s shirt sponsor. A deal that is said to be for seven years. The new shirt sponsorship deal is worth an “incredible” £357million between now and 2021 which is more than double than what their current package brings in.

Chevrolet will be the club’s fifth shirt sponsor in history and the deal is worth well over the £20m per season currently being paid by AON. Speaking about the collaboration Man United’s commercial director Richard Arnold said: “This is a fantastic, long-term deal for the club. We have been partners with Chevrolet for only six weeks, but already they have produced some fantastic ideas that will benefit both the partnership and our 659 million followers around the world. They are a key partner on our current tour and I know they have enjoyed experiencing the buzz generated by our fanatical support and the sell-out crowds in South Africa, China, and Europe.”

Alan Batey, General Motors’ North America VP of US Sales and Service was quoted saying: “We are extremely proud to connect our brand, Chevrolet, with Manchester United and its passionate supporters all around the world.”

“Manchester United’s statistics are impressive, but this relationship goes far beyond the numbers – this relationship is about connecting our brand with the deep-seated emotion that surrounds the team everywhere it goes. And, to be only the fifth name on the iconic red jersey is a genuine honour. We very much look forward to the road ahead and the opportunities we have in partnering with such a legendary club.”

The Chevy – Liverpool Association

Their four-year deal with Liverpool is that of the club’s official car sponsor. The partnership runs to the end of the 2015/16 campaign. Ian Ayre, managing director of the Anfield club, said the deal showed “the value of Liverpool’s international appeal.”

Chevrolet was also the official sponsor for Liverpool’s North American pre-season tour, which saw them play Toronto FC, AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspurs in the US. In July 2012, Chevrolet and English Premier League football team Liverpool F.C. announced a four-year partnership which would see Chevrolet become the official automotive partner of the club.

A significant milestone achieved!

Blog Images_100000 engineGM India rolls out its 100,000th engine

The Talegaon manufacturing plant just reached the milestone of producing 100,000 engines. This has been achieved within just two years of the powertrain facility’s inception in Maharashtra. This is a huge milestone for the company given that the facility is GM’s first powertrain plant in the world that simultaneously produces both petrol and diesel engines.

The facility is known to produce the most fuel-efficient engine in India. The 1.0 litre diesel engine that does duty in the Beat is one of the smallest and cleanest diesel engines in the world which also makes it the most popular car from GM’s stable in India. The popularity extends to the 1.3 SDE (small diesel engine) that powers the newest car from the GM portfolio – the all new SAIL U-VA.

Not to be left behind are GM’s small gasoline engines, the most fun to drive gasoline engines in various cars such as Spark, Beat and SAIL U-VA. The Talegaon facility churns out 1.0 litre and 1.2 litre gasoline engines with high level of performance compared with the competition.

2012 has already been a remarkable year for General Motors India and it just got better with this landmark achievement, thanks to the ever increasing popularity of the Chevrolet Beat and all new SAIL U-VA. Commenting on the achievement, Mr. Lowell Paddock, President & Managing Director, General Motors India said, “This is a proud moment for us all of us at GM India. Crossing the milestone of producing 100,000 engines at the Powetrain plant is a testament of our commitment to the Indian market. With the launch of the Chevrolet SAIL U-VA and the forthcoming launches of Chevrolet SAIL and Chevrolet Enjoy, we will be stepping up the production at the plant. We look forward to achieving more milestones as we go ahead and offer best-in-segment cars in the Indian automobile market.”

The General Motors India’s Talegaon manufacturing plant was also recently recognized by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for Energy Reduction Progress. The plant is one of GM’s 54 facilities worldwide to meet this voluntary energy-reduction challenge set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Talegaon manufacturing facility managed in cutting its energy intensity by 12 percent in less than two years thereby avoiding the release of 4,419 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

Road Tripping – India’s Best Routes for Motoring Nirvana!

blog_img1There are two kinds of travellers. Those who travel from point A to point B, looking for the shortest/most comfortable means to do so. And then there are those who make their own way, taking the road less traveled, and quite literally at that! India, a country as diverse as can be in every sense of the word, is also the perfect playground for the ones who wish to go the extra mile on their own accord, traversing great distances fuelled by nothing more than a relentless desire and a tankful of gas in their favorite ride. Here’s a glimpse of India’s best roads to experience motoring nirvana!

Golden triangle (Delhi-Agra-Jaipur): Easily the first choice of thousands of road trip enthusiasts, the golden triangle has earned the moniker in every sense of the word. Studded with magnificent sights from the Red Fort and Jama Masjid in Delhi; to the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri in Agra; and last but not the least, one can visit the Keoladeo Ghana National Park en route to Jaipur, which has quite a few spectacles to its credit as well, namely City Palace, Amber Fort and Hawa Mahal.

Manali-Leh: Although it’s a pretty unpredictable and tasking ride, the journey is an amazing experience nevertheless. There’s nothing that comes even remotely close to the feeling of achievement as one crosses four mountain passes across a distance of 4900 metres, including the fabled Rohtang. Roads are generally open from June to late September.

Chennai-Mahabalipuram-Pondicherry-Chidambaram-Thanjavur-Trichy-Madurai: It’s a southern surprise like no other – Starting from Chennai and taking the East Coast Road for a quick stop at the Cholamandala Artist’s Village, followed by a visit to the ruins of Mahabalipuram, a World Heritage Site. French elegance coupled with a dash of Tamil culture greets you in Pondicherry, while the great Nataraja temple complex in Chidambaram offers many awe-inspiring sights. Add the ancient capital of the Chola empire, Thanjavur; Trichy, home to possibly India’s biggest temple complex, and Madurai, one of India’s oldest cities, and you have a fantastic journey on the cards.

Jaipur-Pushkar-Udaipur-Kumbhalgarh-Jodhpur-Jaisalmer: The state of Rajasthan offers one of the most picturesque driving routes featuring its most iconic cities. The holy city of Pushkar, Lake Pichola at Udaipur, a journey through the Aravallis en route to Jumbhalgarh, an overdose of blue in Jodhpur and the royal destination of Jaiselmer await the discerning traveller.

Happy motoring!
