Chevrolet

Chevrolet is the leader division of the General Motors Concern engaged in manufacture of passenger cars, cross road cars and pick-up vehicles.

The Company was established by the father of the General Motors – Mr. U. Durant in 1911. Those times he had retired from managing GM and commenced activities of organizing new car manufacturing companies. Quitting General Motors Durant has taken with himself the design documentation of a very interesting car model together with the famous race pilot Luis Chevrolet (in honor of who the company has been named) and made a further engineering development of the design. First model of Class Six was presented in 1912 – a spacious five seat sedan with electric lights, four doors and convertible hood.

The famous trade mark symbol of Chevrolet – the bow necktie appeared in 1914 together with one of the models and remains unchanged up till now.

The company was developing rather fast and by end of 1917 the scope of car production reached 100 000 units per annum. After production of aero engines during the period of WWII the company came back to motor cars again and in 1953 the famous Corvette sports car with fiberglass body made its first appearance in the market.

During the ten years the model underwent different design modifications before the reliable and low maintenance car has been created. The new generation Corvette was issued in 1984 and Camaro IROC-Z was made in 1985.

The new full drive off-road cars Blazer and Suburban appeared in 1992. The new construction design Blazer appeared in 1995. Chevrolet -- the famous GM branch nowadays is manufacturing dozens of models of any class and type in many countries. Starting from 2002 the Daewoo cars are made under the brand name of Chevrolet (within «the GM-Daewoo Auto & Technology» Corporation). The Aveo, Spark, Lacetti and Rezzo models came into the market.
