Chevrolet Cruze to hit Chinese market on April 18th.

March 30, 2009 - The long-awaited Cruze model under Shanghai GM's Chevrolet brand is set to go on sale in the Chinese market on April 18, xinhuanet.com said today. This Chevrolet A-class sedan will be priced between 110,000 yuan ($16,100) and 150,000 yuan.

The first batch of all-new compact Chevrolet Cruze sedans has been delivered to the showrooms of Shanghai GM 4S stores in many Chinese cities. Theses cars are only for show in the stores and can not be used for trial driving by potential buyers.

The Chevrolet Cruze will be one of GM's world cars. Shanghai GM started the production of the Cruze in the joint venture's Shenyang factory in late 2008, with the first fully assembled test model rolling off the line on December 17.

GM said that the Chevy Cruze was developed by a global design and engineering team and would be built in multiple locations around the world. It is underpinned by the GM Delta II platform. Cruze features a dramatic re-interpretation of the traditional sedan featuring Chevrolet's new global design language.

The Chevrolet Cruze has enhanced interior space and cargo capacity of five passengers and it comes with compact dimensions featuring bold styling cues, an arching roofline, sloping rear pillars that give it a lean profile and a neatly styled rear deck.

The Cruze model made in China should be the 1.8-liter gasoline version, but the 1.6-liter edition is also possible, said Shanghai GM President Ding Lei at the end of last year.

In China, the Chevrolet Cruze is to rival the Ford Focus. The arrival of the new compact sedan spearheads a roll-out of new products for the Chevrolet brand, which is expected to grow in the Chinese A-Class sedan segment.
