Chevrolet is General Motors' largest global brand with 2013 sales of almost five million vehicles in more than 140 countries. It is the fourth biggest global car brand in terms of sales and one of the fastest growing brands in the world.
Chevrolet cars combine bold design, performance, innovation and practicality. They provide outstanding value for money. Established in the U.S. by Swiss émigré Louis Chevrolet in 1911, the brand celebrated its centenary in 2011.
The European Chevrolet line-up currently includes the Spark city car, the small Aveo sedan and hatchback, the Trax small SUV, the compact Cruze sedan, hatchback and station wagon, the Orlando family van, the Captiva SUV, the Malibu mid-size sedan, the legendary Camaro and Corvette sports cars and the extended-range Volt electric car.
In December 2013, General Motors announced its decision to cease Chevrolet new-car sales in Europe by the end of 2015, with the exception of iconic, U.S.-built performance cars.
