Back in February, General Motors announced it would pull Chevrolet from the domestic market in Thailand by the end of 2020, citing “low plant utilization” at its Rayong Assembly plant in the country, among other reasons.
Now, General Motors Thailand is offering local customers one last chance to purchase a new Chevrolet Colorado before GM is gone from the market for good. In a recent release, Chevrolet Thailand said it currently has “just a small number of the award-winning Colorado pick-up trucks left in stock, meaning customers need to act fast to secure a vehicle under Chevrolet’s special stock clearance.”
Chevrolet Thailand is currently offering up to 204,000 Thai baht off of the purchase of a new Chevrolet Colorado, equivalent to just over $6,300 USD at the time of writing. Pricing for the entry-level version of the truck in the country starts at 495,000 baht, or just over $15,000 USD. Only the range-topping Colorado Trail Boss, which starts at 655,000 baht (just over $20,000 USD) is offered with the full 204,000 baht discount, however lesser discounts on being offered on the X-Cab and X-Cab Z71 models as well.
“Chevrolet Colorado has been our top-selling vehicle since its launch in Thailand,” General Director of Sales at Chevrolet Thailand, Piyanuch Chaturaphat, said in a statement. “If you are looking for a pickup truck that meets all your needs, Chevrolet Colorado remains the answer, backed by our ongoing Aftersales and Customer Service business here in Thailand.”
Back in February, the Chevrolet Captiva was also offered with a massive price reduction to reduce dealership inventory. While GM plans to exit the Thai market before the end of the year, it will maintain an aftersales network in the country and will continue to service cars in the country and provide spare parts. It will also fulfill all existing warranties in the country.
In a statement released earlier this year, GM CEO Mary Barra said the automaker decided to leave Thailand as it is “restructuring our international operations, focusing on markets where we have the right strategies to drive robust returns, and prioritizing global investments that will drive growth in the future of mobility, especially in the areas of EVs and AVs.”
