GM Korea to Launch New Chevrolet Volt EV in 2016

General Motors Korea Launches Chevrolet Cruze Compact Car in South Korea

General Motors (GM) Korea launched its 2015-model-year Chevrolet Cruze compact car in South Korea. The latest model has received exterior changes, including chrome accents to the grille and a bar on the upper rear bumper, along with new 16/17-inch alloy wheels. The model is available in diesel as well as gasoline options, with a 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox. The latest Cruze features new fog lamps, LED lights, along with additional safety requirements including TPMS and electronic stability control. The model is priced in the range of KRW 17.5 - 22.25 million.

General Motors Korea Launches 2015 Model Year Aveo Subcompact Car in South Korea

General Motors Korea has launched the 2015 model year Aveo subcompact car in South Korea. GM Korea's new product development team revealed that the automaker's 1.4-litre gasoline (petrol) turbo engine is now available on the entire Aveo range of models in the country. The 1.4-litre turbo engine produces 140 hp [of maximum power] at a lower rpm and generates steady torque, which provides stable and powerful output in real driving situations. The 1.4-litre engine was adapted for the Aveo RS and Cruze Turbo [initially and was] followed by the Trax as part of Chevrolet's downsizing powertrain strategy, and recently replaced the entire Aveo powertrain line-up in the South Korean market. The latest Aveo now comes as standard with a tyre pressure monitoring system, hill start assist and electronic stability control. With the manual six-speed transmission, the car is claimed to achieve fuel-efficiency of 14.9 km/l. The Cruze, Aveo and the Trax models were initially launched in South Korea with 1.6, 1.8 and 2-litre gasoline and diesel engines, however, starting 2011 GM Korea began to introduce the smaller but fuel-efficient 1.4-litre gasoline turbo engine in its model line-up, according to IHS Automotive powertrain forecasts. All of these models are now available with the 1.4-litre turbo engine variant; the combined sales of these three models powered by the 1.4-litre turbo engine surged to 32,664 units in South Korea last year, more than double from 15,401 units in 2011.
