"It is an important addition to GM's sedan line up in India. It competes in one of the fastest-growing segments," GM India president and managing director Lowell Paddock said.
The Sail is built on a new global passenger car platform from GM's Chinese partner SAIC, created especially for the fast-growing emerging markets.
The Sail sedan will compete with the likes of Swift DZire from Maruti Suzuki and Indigo from Tata Motors.
It is available in both petrol and diesel options. While the petrol version is powered by a 1.2-litre engine, the diesel option has a 1.3-litre engine.
The petrol variant is priced between Rs 4.99 lakh and 6.41 lakh. The diesel option comes at a price range of Rs 6.29 lakh and Rs 7.51 lakh.
