GM’s Chevrolet brand accounted for 4,949 new vehicle sales in Colombia in June 2016. The results represent an increase of 4.7 percent, or 224 units, over the 4,725 Chevrolets sold in May of 2016.
However, research performed by GM Authority showed that the Colombian auto industry grew faster than Chevy growth during the month: a total of 20,553 new cars were sold in Colombia in June, which represents an increase of 5.7 percent, or 1,115 cars, over the 19,438 new cars sold in May 2016. As such, Chevrolet grew one percentage point slower than Colombia’s auto industry as a whole.
Expected to help sales is the all-new 2016 Chevy Cruze sedan, which was launched in Colombia in May. We also expect that the Bowtie will bring the refreshed 2017 Chevrolet Onix to Colombia in the second half of the year; the subcompact hatchback was announced for the Brazilian market just a few days ago.
