The end of Chevrolet in Thailand will see 1,500 people lose their jobs at two factories in the East, but it also means more than 4,000 Chevrolets will go on sale for prices starting between Bt200,000 and Bt500,000 less than previously.
Although there’s been no official announcement, all Chevrolet dealerships have posted calculated prices after the discount.
The cost of a Captiva LS drops from Bt999,000 to Bt499,000 and the LT models from Bt1.099 million to Bt599,000. The premier model is Bt699,000, down from Bt1.199 million.
Smaller discounts apply to Colorado models and Trailblazers. The Colorado Trailboss manual version is priced at Bt775,000, down from Bt859,000. The Colorado High Country 2WD model is Bt775,000, down from Bt998,000, and the Trailblazer 2.5 LT is Bt895,000, down from Bt1.144 million.
The three-year or 100,000-kilometre warrantee still applies on all models.
Chevrolet has said its service centres will continue operating, but has not yet specified which dealers will continue offering service.
