New Chevrolet models coming to European market next year

Chevrolet plans to get a big piece of the European market, as they have announced five new models for Europe coming next year. More precisely, the European market will get new cars like the Chevrolet Camaro convertible, Chevrolet Camaro coupe, the production version of the Chevrolet Aveo RS sedan, the Chevrolet Aveo RS hatchback as well as a production model based on the Chevrolet Orlando minivan concept shown at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. Wayne Brannon, Chevrolet Europe president and managing director confirmed this information himself.

It is well known that in Europe taxes are based on the engine capacity, so it might be a problem for Chevrolet Camaro fans from Europe. From what it seems, both versions of the Chevrolet Camaro will get their power from a 6.2 liter V8 engine that has an output of 426 horsepower and a 3.6 liter V6 engine that develops 304 horsepower, which are the same engines offered for the North American market. There have been talks about a 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinders engine with an output of 260 horsepower for the European market version of the Chevrolet Camaro but it seems this will not happen after all.

The Chevrolet Aveo RS will most likely get its power from a 1.4 liter Ecotec turbocharged gasoline engine with an output of 138 horsepower that will be coupled to a six speed manual gearbox.

Way Brannon, Chevrolet Europe president and managing director, has stated ``The Chevrolet Aveo RS clearly demonstrates that we are ready to make a big step forward in the small-car segment``. He continued by saying ``Coming to Europe in 2011, the new Chevrolet Aveo will be completely in tune with the striking new Cruze and Spark, our all-new compact and mini entries``.

The Chevrolet Camaro Convertible and the production version of the Chevrolet Orlando MPV are expected to be launched towards the end of this year. The production version of the Chevrolet Orlando will most likely get its power from a number of gasoline and diesel engines and it is likely to keep the seven seat interior layout of the concept.

The European premiere of the Chevrolet Aveo RS (the world debut took place last month at the 2010 North American International Auto Salon), the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible and the Chevrolet Orlando will take place at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
