Chevrolet to introduce 20 new or refreshed vehicles in China through 2020; hybrids and PHEVs included
Chevrolet will introduce more than 20 totally new or refreshed products in China, its second-largest market, by the end of 2020.
Nearly 30% of the models will be SUVs; nearly half will be new nameplates for the China portfolio. They will feature a variety of efficient and powerful advanced propulsion technologies such as small-displacement turbocharged engines, diesel engines, and hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric technology.
They include several models that debuted earlier this year, including the Malibu XL, Chevrolet’s new flagship sedan in China; the Malibu XL Hybrid, the brand’s first pure hybrid in China; the all-new Cruze, the latest generation of Chevrolet’s best-selling model both globally and in China; the Cavalier compact midsize family sedan; and the sixth-generation Camaro sports car.
Most of the products will be manufactured in China by GM’s SAIC-GM joint venture and many will be tailored for the domestic market by its Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) joint venture.
Chevrolet has been offered in China since 2005 by SAIC-GM. Last year, the 4 millionth Chevrolet was sold in China. The brand’s vehicles are available at more than 600 dealerships in more than 200 cities nationwide.
