Get away in a Chevrolet – and a lot more cheaply

The promise of slashed prices packed the Chevrolet showroom near Vibhavadi Rangsit Road in Bangkok on Wednesday (February 19) – the silver lining to General Motors’ announcement earlier this week that it will shut down production and sales of Chevrolet in Thailand by the end of the year.

Chevrolet (Thailand) has some 4,000 vehicles to sell, so its dealers have been dropping attractive bait on Facebook.

The price of a Captiva 1.5 LS Turbo has been halved from Bt999,000 to Bt499,000.

Other discounts on offer: The Trailblazer 2.5 LT 2WD from Bt1.144 million to Bt895,000, the Colorado High Country 2WD from Bt998,000 to Bt775,000 and the Colorado Trailboss MT 2WD from Bt859,000 to Bt655,000.

Buyers still get a three-year or 100,000-kilometre warranty to maintain customer confidence.

The Captiva is the newest model in Thailand, imported from China last year, but only 250 units a month were selling. The other models are built in Rayong province.
