“Chevrolet is in the midst of the most aggressive new product roll-out in the brand’s history,” said Alan Batey, senior vice president of Global Chevrolet.

“In the Middle East, Chevrolet continues to go from strength-to-strength boosted by its passenger cars. With the recent arrival of the Impala, and launches of the Chevrolet Corvette and Chevrolet Silverado to come, I am confident that 2013 will be a fantastic year for the brand,” said John Stadwick, president and GM of General Motors Middle East.
