We made a real life video on the wife making her husband relive his favorite childhood memory of receiving a Chevrolet toy car from his uncle, packed in a box.

Sailing Through The Himalayas

6

October 6, 2013: It was a full house, with raring enthusiasm, in Shimla, with motorsport enthusiasts from all parts of the country ready to set off for the highest rally of the world – the Raid De Himalaya. The Raid, as referred to by most enthusiasts, is counted among the top ten toughest motorsport rallies globally and is witness to unparalleled vigor.

It won’t be a euphemism – “For the diehard rally driver, it’s the mecca of rallying in Asia”. The highest rally in the world; only 25% starters finish; an extreme endurance event of marathon proportions; it will be cold, very very cold; there will be almost no oxygen to breathe; the roads will be like river beds, well, icy river beds, and the knowledge that one may not return from this adventure as the same person that waved goodbye cheerily to his family and friends a week before, in fact one may not return at all….

And as a reward one will have the country’s most envied bragging rights – That itself, if finished,  , will be an unbelievable victory, as rallying at 6000 meters above sea level is unheard of by most.

The vehicle selected was 1.3 litre diesel powered SAIL Hatchback. The preparation of the vehicle was executed under the supervision of General Motors Technical Centre India, Bangalore. The vehicle was engineered and fitted with safety equipment like, roll cage, safety seats and belts, under body plate to successfully traverse the most difficult and unforgiving terrains. And, of course, we had our helmets to protect us while we drove!

The route to “Raid” traversed the difficult stretches of Kaza, Tabo, Keylong, Khardung La and Wari La and finally to close at Leh. With the backdrop of the Himalayas and real dangers threatening every participant, the task of mere completion was terrifying. Achieving the end of each day was a real victory. This was a real adventure – as a single wrong step meant having a free fall from highest altitudes.

The Raid tested qualities of endurance, physical and mental toughness on one side, and on the other, tested the choice of vehicle and planning for the unexpected.

We drove past the  highest motorable altitudes, the mightiest mountains where nothing much survives and learnt that one needs to be physically fit and mentally strong, that the unexpected lies around the next bend and it need not always be pleasant! -A well-prepared car and physical fitness to face the rigors that the high altitude route has to offer, both need to be in place.

The day normally started just after sunrise, and terminated just before dusk. However there were delays and, on a few occasions, we drove with lights on, without knowing how much depth one is running, with just about 2 meters of road on the either side of the vehicle.

Our SAIL Hatchback kept us moving, even while we saw many others withdrawing in between because of various breakdowns by their machines. The vehicle performed to expectations, with the ground clearance the only major concern, given the terrain we had to battle with, while competing with a lineup dominated by SUVs.  It was indeed testing, for every moving or stationary part of vehicle which underwent the treacherous, unforgiving terrain, as each day for a grueling 12 – 14 hours, stones hit every corner of our vehicle like bullets. The suspension, the engine, the transmission, along with the driver, each needed perfect harmony – and finally when the man and the machine, after 6 days of rallying across 1800km, arrived safe, all the pain was relieved and a true sense of achievement prevailed.

The overall experience was enriching and gave a sense of pride for the machine. We learned how to survive in extreme conditions, and keep the target in mind irrespective of all the harsh elements.

Winning or losing comes second – what matters most is man and machine working in tandem yet finishing safe.

SAIL Hatchback is what you deserve

SAIL U-VAThe truth of life is that you always want to demand more from everything. A car is no different, after all, it is the second largest investment you are likely to make after a house. Autocar India, one India’s leading automobile publications, recently published a piece about things to look for in an ideal car, and the varied demands we tend to have from a car. The following are the demands you must make from the car you intend to purchase:

  • The car should look good
  • It should be fantastically comfortable
  • It should be loaded with the latest tech
  • The car should be fun to drive
  • It should give you a choice of powerful, yet frugal diesel and petrol engines
  • It should have lots of storage space
  • The car should be economical, not just to buy, but also to run and maintain
  • The car should not compromise the safety of your family and loved ones
  • It should be great value for money
  • The car should be backed by a nationwide network of service outlets, so that you can explore this country without a bother

To sum up, you want a luxury car that meets all your demands without demanding you pay for it with an arm and a leg. Sounds like a typical ‘Which car should we buy’ discussion? We figured. And yes, there is a car that meets your demands – The Chevrolet SAIL Hatchback!

To start with, the first thing you see about a car – its styling! With hawk-wing style front headlamps and chrome inserts, the Sail Hatchback hits the sweet spot as soon as you set your eyes on it. You are, however, going to be spending a major chunk of your time with the car on the inside. Harmonious dual-tone interiors coupled with a dual-cockpit design, inspired from the Corvette, give you a feeling of plush luxury every time you step into your car. The Bluetooth enabled integrated entertainment system will keep you entertained on your drives, no matter how short or long!

Not only will the Chevrolet Sail Hatchback seat 5 passengers in comfort, it will also hold your belongings like laptops, water bottles, bags and whatever else you carry with you! To add to the convenience, the Chevrolet Sail Hatchback offers power steering, power windows, power adjustable outside rearview mirrors, tilt steering, remote keyless entry and even a luggage compartment lamp. That’s a no compromise situation!

With a safety cage, side impact beams on front and rear doors, dual airbags, ABS & EBD and a child lock, the Chevrolet Sail Hatchback ticks all the boxes on safety, and then some! While the safety features will ensure you get from point A to B safely, the SMARTECH Diesel & Petrol engines on offer in the Chevrolet Sail Hatchback will get you there without stopping at the fuel station very often, while ensuring a smooth and powerful drive. To complement the performance of the engine, there is the fantastic handling and suspension, which will keep you happy not only over bad roads, but also on twisty highways!

The icing on the cake is the Chevrolet Promise and Warranty. While the former will ensure you have minimal running costs over a 3 year/45,000km (whichever earlier) period, the best-in-class 3 year/100,000km warranty will ensure you have peace of mind from the day you take delivery of your car! Is it any wonder that the Chevrolet Sail Hatchback was the most awarded car in its segment?
