Chevrolet, or Chevy, is a brand of automobile that is now part of the General Motors group. Its founder, Louis Chevrolet, was a racing driver born on December 25, 1878 in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland.
1951 Chevrolet Pickup
On November 3, 1911, Chevrolet officially entered the automobile market to compete with the Ford Model T. A year later (1912), the 'Classic Six' was introduced. The 'Classic Six' was a 5-passenger touring sedan equipped with a 299 cubic inch (4.9 L), 6 cylinder engine capable of taking the car to a top speed of 65 miles per hour (105 km/h).
Chevrolet first used its 'bowtie' logo in 1913.
Throughout the 20th century, Chevrolet manufactured a wide variety of models. This included the large and luxurious Impala (1958) and the short-lived mid/rear-engined Corvair (1960).
The Corvette, which was introduced in 1953, remains the longest running production car from Chevrolet and is still produced today.
The Suburban also known as the Suburban Carryall, was introduced in 1936 and remains in production today, making it the longest running production truck from Chevrolet.
The Chevrolet Camaro ceased production in 2002 after 35 years of production (1967). The last one to be rolled off the lot was a red Z28.
Chevrolet outside North America
In markets outside North America, the Chevrolet brand name has been used on other GM models. For example, the Corsa, Astra, and Vectra, designed by Opel in Europe, are badged as Chevrolets throughout Latin America. (This was also the case in South Africa until 1982.) Similarly, the Commodore from Holden in Australia is badged as a Chevrolet Omega in Brazil and Argentina, and a Chevrolet Lumina in South Africa, Thailand and the Middle East, while models as the Chevrolet Aveo and the Optra are sourced from Daewoo in South Korea. Utility and four wheel drive vehicles from Isuzu and Suzuki in Japan are also badged as Chevrolets in some markets.
In 2005 Daewoo will be rebranded http://www.daewoo-cars.co.uk/local/q3microsite/news/celebrate.htm as Chevrolet in the United Kingdom.
