Chevy celebrates 100th anniversary
Over 200 million Chevrolets have been sold since the brand was founded, and today one Chevy is sold every 8 seconds around the world. Founded in Detroit in November 1911, by racer Louis Chevrolet and General Motors founder William C. Durant, the Chevys quickly earned a reputation for performance, durability and value. From the first Series C Classic Six, to the Suburban, to the iconic Corvette, to the Volt; Chevrolet has brought technology, design and features typically reserved for more expensive cars to its lineup of affordable cars and trucks. Now as they gear up to blow out 100 candles, the company is riding on a new wave of popularity and growing global presence with cars like the Camaro and Cruze.
