Usually referred to as Chevy, Chevrolet Division of General Motors Company is one of the biggest divisions of GM. The company started in 1911 under the name Chevrolet Motor Car Company, founded by Louis Chevrolet and William C Durant.
Shortly after its start, Chevrolet managed to impose as the main producer and seller in the GM family, providing models that could compete against Ford’s Model T and in 1929, overtaking Ford as the best-selling car on the American Continent.
Chevrolet sells vehicles almost everywhere around the world, mostly under its own name, with the exception of Oceania, where its subsidiary Holden is producing cars for the market. Chevrolet reentered the European market in 2005 by selling vehicles originating from GM Daewoo of South Korea.
The largest amount of sales by Chevrolet cars are done within North American borders, with vehicles ranging between small class cars up to medium duty trucks. One of the famous products released by Chevrolet represents the Chevy small-block V8 engine design which stood in the production line for longer than any other engine unit all around the world. Chevrolet V8 units have evolved over time as fitted with new technology, including aluminum blocks, electronic injection and electronic engine management. Chevy blocks feature displacements between 4.3 and 9.4 liters and power outputs between 111hp and a staggering 994hp.
In 2010, Chevrolet proved to provide a successful strategy on the emerging plug-in hybrid (PHEV) car market of the time, with the Chevrolet Volt (Opel/Vauxhall Ampera in Europe) winning multiple awards and being also the bestselling PHEV in the world in 2012, with 31,400 units. A few years later, in 2016, Chevrolet developed the Bolt EV, focusing on maintaining a low sale price tag and decent mileage on a single charge, once again winning the award of the best EV (electric vehicle) of the year.
