Initially formed in 1911, Chevrolet became a part of General Motors via a reverse merger engineered by company founder William C. Durant. Chevy may be most known for its famous sports car, the Corvette, as well as being one of the first manufacturers to overtake Ford as the best-selling car in the United States (which occurred for a brief time after 1929.)a
The first automobile that Chevrolet made was the Chevrolet Series C Classic Six, a 6-cylinder engine full-size touring vehicle. The initial price was $2,250, the equivalent of $65,435 in current value. Today, Chevrolet makes various cars, trucks, SUVs, and sports cars. Current models include the Colorado and Silverado trucks, Blazer and Equinox SUVs, and Bolt and Malibu cars. The best-selling model of Chevrolet is the Impala, which sold more than 13 million units between 1958 and 2000.
Chevrolet was one of the first manufacturers to adopt the electric vehicle trend, starting their hybrid creation as far back as the early 2000s. Chevrolet plans to expand its lineup of electric vehicles, the current highest selling of which is the Chevy Bolt. They recently announced that in the fall of 2023, they plan to reveal their new EVs: the Equinox, an EV SUV, an all-electric Chevy Blazer, and an electric model of the Silverado truck.
