General Motors has just released the first official teaser for the upcoming Chevy small car as a prelude to the imminent world debut of Chevrolet‘s new entry-level vehicle in Mexico.
A couple of weeks after GM Authority reported the capture of the upcoming Chevy small car during its validation tests in the Latin country, GM’s Mexican subsidiary released a teaser video announcing the launch of the new subcompact vehicle which will compete in the Mexican automotive market’s most popular segment. In fact, the company projects that the Chevy small car will be a favorite among Mexican consumers.
“At Chevrolet, we find new roads and for this reason, we will later share details of a new vehicle that will become the favorite of Mexican customers,” said Marketing Manager for Chevrolet at GM Mexico, Wilberto del Ángel, in a statement. “Expect information very soon,” he added.
The automaker thus confirms that the upcoming Chevy small car will make its world debut in Mexico which will be the main volume market for the as-yet-unnamed next-generation vehicle. It’s a new entry-level model to the Bow Tie brand’s portfolio that will replace the aging Chevy Sail/Aveo in some selected markets in Latin America and Africa.
Known internally as project code “310C,” the upcoming Chevy small car is an all-new vehicle from the Wuling brand’s global model lineup that will be sold as a Chevrolet in some emerging markets outside of China. It’s the first model in Wuling’s new global strategy to wear the American brand’s logo, and was announced before the original Wuling model that will wear the Global Silver logo.
The upcoming Chevy small car is expected to make its world debut in the coming weeks in Mexico, where it will be available in five-door hatchback and four-door sedan body styles. Units of the model are already manufactured at the Tianjin plant of the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture in China, which will supply all international markets where it will be sold.
