Ranked fourth in total global annual sales, Chevrolet has produced more than 200 million cars and trucks since its formation in 1911. In 2011 alone, Chevrolet sold 4.76 million vehicles, or one every 6.6 seconds. William Durant, who ran Buick then started General Motors, formed Chevrolet in 1918, which in turn thrust him back into the GM Presidency (…you follow?). In 1919 GM acquired Chevrolet to compete with Henry Ford’s Model T, the best selling car in America at the time. By 1929 Chevrolet had taken over that mantle. In Australia, Chevrolet models are sold by GM’s subsidiary company, Holden. More commonly referred to as Chevy, the vehicle is now sold in 140 countries, including the iconic Corvette and Camaro.
