With over a billion people (and growing), India may one day have a thirst for oil rivaling even the U.S. Chevrolet is offering Indian consumers another choice though, a propane-powered Chevrolet Beat microcar.
This isn’t the first we’ve heard of the Beat; it was once slated to come to America, and there’s rumored to be a diesel and electric version in the works. The LPG Beat gets 13.29 kmpl (about 30 mpg U.S.) on propane, the best in its class in India. And get this; it also still has all the equipment to run on petrol, so if there aren’t any nearby LPG stations, you can still fill the Beat up with gasoline. The LPG Beat comes with a 35,000 Rupee (about $766) premium.
