The Chevrolet Spark will make its world debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2009. The all-new A-segment entry will reach the European markets in early 2010. The vehicle will also be added to the Chevrolet portfolio in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2011. The announcement was made by Troy Clarke, President GM North America, during Chevrolet’s press conference at the North American International Auto Show at Detroit.
“The Chevrolet Spark will add great style, roominess and versatility to the segment of extremely fuel-efficient small cars in the US,” said Clarke. “The decision to add the Spark to Chevrolet’s North American portfolio reflects the brand’s commitment to being a fuel efficiency leader in the US vehicle industry.”
At the same time, Troy Clarke announced that the Chevrolet Orlando concept vehicle shown at the Paris Motor Show in September 2008 will go into production in 2010 and be on offer in North America as well as in Europe.
Originally seen as the Chevrolet Beat concept, the five-door Chevrolet Spark will provide versatility with a fresh, youthful exterior and interior design that is reflected in the selection of materials and colors. The Chevrolet Spark will make its world debut in full production form at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2009. Sales will start in Europe in the first quarter of 2010, followed by other markets around the globe.
“These two stylish vehicles make a big statement,” said Wayne Brannon, Executive Director, Chevrolet Europe. “With their fresh, clean approach, we believe Spark and Orlando will appeal to a wide range of customers who want fuel efficiency, functionality and great design combined with excellent value.”
