Continuing the whole on and off again subject for the Chevrolet Beat for the U.S. , Lutz confirmed yesterday that the subcompact Chevy won’t be coming to the stateside. Speaking to the press yesterday on a conference call, GM’s vice chairman said that the Chevrolet Beat, that goes on sale in Europe next year, won’t be coming to the states mainly due to the fact that it doesn’t meet federal safety and crash regulations.
Lutz said that it would cost GM way too much money to make the move right now. However, he said it may come to the U.S. when the next-generation model arrives.
The three-door hatch is powered by a 1.2L turbocharged gasoline unit. Lutz has previously stated that if the Chevrolet Beat came to the U.S. it will start around $10,000.
Well, while you wait for the Chevrolet Beat to arrive at a dealership near you, you can catch in Transformers 2 next year .
