General Motors India will begin exporting vehicles from India with Chile slated to be its first overseas market.

The company will initially export left-hand-drive Chevrolet Beat to Chile. The production of export vehicles will commence at theTalegaon Plant in the second half of 2014, with sales commencing in Chile in the first quarter of 2015, GM India said in a statement.

Commenting on the move, GM India President and Managing Director Arvind Saxena said: "The start of Beat exports underlines GM's commitment to India and demonstrates the quality of the country's growing supplier base."

He further said: "The exports will create more employment opportunities within GM India and the supplier community while helping improve capacity utilisation at the Talegaon Plant."

The company has been struggling to keep its sales momentum in the domestic market due to a slump in demand. In April the company's sales declined 35.30 per cent to at 5,302 units as against 8,196 units sold in the corresponding month of previous year.
