Chevrolet sometimes referred to as Chevy, and formally the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Company is an American car division of the American carmaker General Motors (GM). Louis Chevrolet and exiled General Motors author William C. Durant began the company on November 3, 1911, as the Chevrolet Motor Car Company. Durant utilized the Chevrolet Motor Car Company to procure a controlling stake in General Motors with a reverse merger taking place on May 2, 1918 and moved back to the GM presidency.
After Durant's second rousting in 1919, Alfred Sloan, with his saying "a vehicle for every purse and purpose", would pick the Chevrolet brand to become the volume leader in the GM family, offering standard vehicles to rival Henry Ford's Model T in 1919 and surpassing Ford as the best-selling car in the United States by 1929. Continuing to improve and evolve, the American company issued another new generation of its classical Corvette, Impala, and Camaro models practically at every ten years. Toward the end of the twentieth century, SUVs became very popular amongst customers throughout the world. This development made Chevrolet concoct another line-up of off-road vehicles.
Presently, the popularly known division of the General Motors Company manufactures many models of vehicles of any class and type in various parts of the world: The United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, India, Argentina, South Korea, and China. The concern is keeping pace with the cutting-edge technologies, launching electric vehicles and hybrid, and at the same time, while still upgrading its classical models like the Corvette.
