It’s been three months since Chevy returned to the local market and Chevrolet division of Delta this week claimed to have exceeded its sales target in its first month of sales reporting.


To date, 15 independent Chevrolet dealership have already opened for business in each of the country’s major metropolitan areas in addition to areas such as Klerksdorp, Upington, Witbank , Vredenburg and in Port Shepstone.


“Chevrolet’s start-up in South Africa has exceeded expectations, particularly in aspects such as demand for Chevrolet dealer franchises and products in the top end of the vehicle range,” said Chevrolet SA national marketing manager Arthur Boyle.


According to the November new vehicle sales figures supplied by Naamsa, Chevrolet SA sold 194 vehicles last month.


“The V8 Lumina SS and Lumina SS Ute have thus far been the stars of Chevrolet’s range. Demand for these products has exceeded supply and we expect this will continue as we extend our marketing,” added Boyle.


Chevrolet SA expects to see up to seven additional dealerships around the country early next year. “East London and Polokwane will see new dealerships and further expansion of the network will be considered in line with the brand’s growth,” Boyle said.
