It might be kindest to say that Chevrolet has, so far, failed to live up to expectations, producing a range of cars that are simply outclassed. None of them are actually bad cars, but they look a bit odd, something that a lot of customers can’t get past, even with the lure of a long, five-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
Experts feel that the best car in their range is the Orlando, a seven-seat MPV that offers outstanding value for money but a lack-lustre driving experience.
With the launch of the Volt in the UK, Chevrolet now has a difference-maker in its line-up of cars. Although only a niche car at present, the Volt has great potential to gain market share as competing brands scramble to match its technological prowess.
