  • Retail unit sales in October at 6,707(best October in Chevrolet Thailand history)
  • Total sales increase 252%  compared to same period in 2011

Bangkok, Thailand - Chevrolet continues the strong sales momentum in the fourth quarter, selling 6,707 units in October, bring the total vehicles sold since the beginning of 2012 to 59,652 - representing a 252% increase compared to the same period in 2011.

The new,  sporty, five-door hatchback version of the Sonic began shipping to dealers from the Rayong manufacturing facility at the end of September, boosting sales of Chevrolet's latest model by 18% during the month of October.  The aerodynamic lines, motorbike-inspired design, and better fuel efficiency allows it to compete with the best subcompacts on the market today.  Chevrolet will also begin offering a limited edition Cruze in a special Ivory White color in November.

"Chevrolet continues to experience a strong momentum in domestic sales," said Antonio Zara, Vice President Sales, Marketing and After Sales GM Thailand.  "With the recent launch of the Sonic hatchback; the opening of the new Chevrolet dealership in the Khon Kaen region, and plans to continue expanding our dealer network across the country, Chevrolet's performance and brand strength will continue to grow beyond our expectations."

Chevrolet's market share in the Southeast Asia region has nearly tripled to 2.9% from 1.4% in October 2011. This represents 7,730 cars sold last month in total. Best performers are Indonesia with 411 units including the new Aveo launch; Malaysia with 156 units; the Philippines with 300 units including the Trailblazer launch; and Singapore with 126 units.
