Chevrolet isn’t a volume seller in Europe. That was the job of GM’s former European divisions, Opel and Vauxhall. However, Chevrolet does hold a sliver of presence on the old continent, but “sliver” could be an understatement. Chevrolet reported it sold one new car in the United Kingdom during January 2018.
The sales announcement came in a Top Gear report published on Monday, which proclaimed UK consumers bought fewer cars last month. For Chevrolet, business was booming… since it didn’t sell a single car in January 2017.
Recall, Chevrolet was present in major European markets until General Motors pulled the brand’s mainstream offerings in 2016. The decision was to help better define Opel and Vauxhall’s place in the UK and the rest of Europe. Around its peak, Chevy sold just under 12,000 cars in 2013.
