Auto-sales-statistics-China-Chevrolet_Cavalier-sedanMonthly and annual sales figures for the Chevrolet Cavalier in China.

Shanghai-GM has resurrected an old name with the launch of the Chinese Chevrolet Cavalier. This car has nothing to do with the one that was sold in North America before being replaced by the Cobalt in 2005. Instead, the new Cavalier is basically a reskinned previous generation Chevrolet Cruze, a car that’s also still on sale in China next to the new generation. That means the Cavalier is powered by the same powertrain as the Cruze Classic: a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 109hp, mated to a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic. Its dimensions are 4.544/1.779/1.467 mm with a wheelbase of 2.600 mm.

The Cavalier is squarely aimed at budget buyers and is looking to steal sales from domestic sedans like the Geely Emgrand GL. Ironically, the Emgrand GL uses a more modern platform, engines and gearboxes than the Chevy. The Cavalier is priced right between Chevrolet’s smaller Sail sedan and the more modern Cruze, and even starts lower than the Cruze Classic at 79.900 yuan (€10.800,- / US$ 11,900).

Car sales statistics from China only include domestic production and exclude imported models.
