You may see Subaru inventory in commercials, Toyota cars at work, and Chevy cars around town, but how much do you really know about them? Outside of what the signs at the Subaru inventory warehouse say, can you say you really know anything about the success of Subaru, Toyota, Chevrolet, or any of these brands? Here are three things you might not know about the cars you see at your local Chevy dealers:
1. Chevy is Prolific
Over the years, you have surely heard the name Chevy and seen the iconic bow tie emblem on the road. Car brands do not enter into the public norms lightly or easily; Chevrolet has been working to earn its position in the public eye since 1912. In the intervening years, the company has established scores of new Chevy dealers and sold over 200 million cars and trucks.
2. Chevy is Growing
While that figure is impressive, it is tempting to think that it might seem a bit too impressive taken out of context; perhaps more cars were made in the past and Chevy is sitting on its laurels, in a sense, every time it touts this figure? In point of fact, though, Chevy has only grown since its birth; in 2011, Chevy sold nearly five million cars and trucks which, when you consider how many it has sold in total over those 100 years, is more than twice the average of what it must have sold each year.
3. Chevy isn’t a Local Phenomenon
While Chevy has certainly sold a lot of cars, that doesn’t mean it is influential around the world. There are local shops and brands that are specific to certain regions; what is to say that Chevy isn’t one such brand? Actually, surveys have found that Chevrolets are on the road, in one way or another, in two thirds of the world. Just think about that — the whole world doesn’t have well established roads or easy access to things like used Chevy dealers, yet Chevrolets are present in two thirds of the world!
