Chevrolet axed in UK – and sales double!

Chevrolet-Orlando-SMMTChevrolet has been axed in the UK and will withdraw by the end of the year – but the news hasn’t affected new car sales…

Last month, Chevrolet sales more than DOUBLED, meaning it had the largest significant growth of any car brand on sale in Britain!

February sales for Chevrolet totalled 535 units, compared to 249 in 2013. That’s a rise of 114%, which is in a different league compared to the average industry growth of 2.98%.

Remarkably, Chevrolet managed to outsell the new value brand on the block, Dacia – as well as Jaguar, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Smart, Porsche and Alfa Romeo.

The reason is, of course, some fantastic deals on the last remaining stocks of Chevrolets in the UK. These include:

  • New Spark 1.0 LS for £6,395 – a saving of £2,480
  • New Chevrolet Aveo 1.2 LS for £8,245 – a saving of £2,500
  • New Chevrolet Cruze 1.6 LS hatch for £9,570 – a saving of £5,000
  • New Chevrolet Orlando 2.0VCDi LT for £13,620 – a saving of £7,000

Given such staggering savings, is it any wonder Chevrolet sales are booming? A seven-seat MPV as talented as the Orlando for less than £14,000 is exceptional – particularly as it’s the choice diesel variant which returns more than 53mpg.

Indeed, Chevrolet may actually have an unexpected problem on its hands soon – securing enough cars to meet demand before the brand is withdrawn at the end of the year…
