The Chevrolet Beat is one of three small car concepts introduced on 4 April 2007 at the 2007 New York International Auto Show. The Beat showcases a new style of small car from General Motors. The mini car was completely designed by GM Daewoo in South Korea. The Beat is powered by a 1.2 L turbocharged gasoline engine mated to an automatic transmission.
The Chevrolet Trax and the Chevrolet Groove will also be showcased providing a vision for future designs in the GM subcompact segment. These three concepts will be voted on after their introduction on the website www.vote4chevrolet.com. The winner will likely be the only version available in the United States.
