Built on GM`s global mini architecture, these concepts demonstrate the flexibility, creativity and innovative focus of design in GM`s Asia Pacific region. The Chevrolet Beat concept, a running prototype of a micro import tuner, was built in India ; while the Chevrolet Groove and Trax micro urban crossover concepts were built at the GM Tech Center in Warren , Mich.
