Like a layer of protective clothing, covers can protect vehicles from bad weather, rust, rocks and other elements that can blemish the paint of a vehicle. Those who take extra care in maintaining their rides may have a cover tailored to fit their exact make and model. And it’s about time car companies started to use these sturdy, reusable wearables when transporting vehicles across the country. Thankfully, General Motors is beginning to do so.
For 2014 alone, GM will be working with a company called CoverCar to design custom vehicle covers that are both easy to install and remove, along with being reusable for approximately 100,000 cars. Some of which will be shipped as far as Dubai.
The first custom cover was made for export of the 2013 Chevrolet Volt and Opel Ampera. Succeeding that was the 2014 Corvette Stingray, which automatically comes with a custom cover no matter where it’s shipped. But now the covers are making their way to the Cadillac ELR and Chevy Malibu, and even the full-size truck and SUV segment such as the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD and 2015 GMC Yukon; which some being sent to the Middle East.
