When the next generation Holden Commodore arrives in 2014, it will carry a design from the Australian office. GM’s vice president of design Ed Welburn has stated that the design of the next gen. Commodore will be as Australian as the Holden brand itself.
“But trust me, the future Holdens will be recognizably Holden’s,” Welburn said. “The whole stance, the whole attitude, the fact that it looks like it is always moving … that will not change. Style and fads come and go, but that Holden essence will remain. It is clear to me that the best designs are the cleanest ones, the timeless ones, and the ones with great proportions.”
Holden’s design team also had a hand in the design of the Chevy Cruze as well.
