Chevrolet could offer its iconic Camaro in the UK in right-hand drive next year, according to company insiders.
Company sources at the Geneva motor show told Autocar that a right-hand drive Camaro was a strong possibility for the UK as it’s based on the Australian Holden Commodore, which is originally engineered for a right-hand drive market.
There is a desire within the firm to produce the car for the UK, but there must be the economies of scale to justify it. Chevrolet has also revealed that the Corvette will be marketed again as Chevrolet in Europe, including in the UK.
Also confirmed at the show were the firm’s intentions to sell the Chevrolet Volt in the UK alongside the Vauxhall Ampera. It would be priced under the Ampera and pitched at the retail market, while the Ampera would mainly be for fleet sales.
Of the 30,000 Volts tipped to be sold in its first year of production, 1000 of these are likely to end up in the UK.
