LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – February 16, 2010: At the 80th international motor show in Geneva, Chevrolet will give a glimpse of what customers will see in European Chevrolet show rooms in the next few years.

"After Cruze in 2009 and Spark in 2010, our centenary year 2011 will usher in five more exciting Chevrolets for Europe," said Chevrolet Europe president and managing director Wayne Brannon.

In 2011, Chevrolet Europe will launch an all-new family vehicle, based on the Orlando show car, and the legendary Chevrolet Camaro, both as coupé and convertible. Other models will also join the European line-up.

The star on the Chevrolet stand in exhibition hall 2 will be the Aveo RS show car, celebrating its European premiere after its world debut at the North American International Auto Show last month. The show car features a dynamic hot hatch look and provides a preview of the next-generation Aveo. Longer, wider and more spacious than the current production Aveo, the Aveo RS comes with upscale-looking design cues both inside and out, and presents the many personalisation options potentially available on the next-generation car.

The Aveo RS show car is powered by a beefy 138PS 1.4-litre Ecotec turbocharged engine. A six-speed manual transmission is designed to ensure the car will provide a spirited driving experience.

"The Aveo RS clearly demonstrates that we are ready to make a big step forward in the small-car segment. Coming to Europe in 2011, the new Aveo will be completely in tune with the striking new Cruze and Spark, our all-new compact and mini entries," said Brannon
