Chevrolet Adra concept: tiny, high riding hatch for India via Australia

The Chevrolet Adra is the first concept car to be designed and engineered wholly by GM India. Due to a lack of fabrication facilities, however, the concept car that was revealed at the New Delhi Auto Show was actually produced by Australia’s own Holden.

Being both tiny and tall, the Adra has been designed for both India’s crowded city streets and its pothole strewn country roads. According to MotorBeam the Adra measures around 4.2m long, so it won’t be eligible for tax concessions in India — these are reserved for vehicles under 4m in length.

It’s expected that the production version of the Adra will debut around 2015, and it will be sold in various parts of the globe, including Brazil, Latin America and the rest of Asia. Given its dimensions, the Chevrolet Adra (or whatever it will be called) will face up against the Ford EcoSport amongst others.
