According to GM of India vice president of corporate affairs, Mr. P Balendran, the automaker has firm plans to build a mini car. The hope is to have a model in play by 2010, with the goal of a 10-percent or better market share internationally.

Details are hard to come by, but the entry-level offering is expected to compete against offerings like the Suzuki Alto and Hyundai Santro, and Balendran pledges that it will be 'competitively priced.'
