2018 Chevrolet Sail (Ecuador)

GM Omnibus BB has launched the locally-assembled Sail 3 in Ecuador. Production started in April. Powered by the 1.5L engine, this model replaces the previous Sail sedan available in the country, however the hatchback (CKD) continues for now (but probably not for long).

SAIC-GM also exports the Sail Classic (Mk 2, 1.4) and Sail (Mk 3, 1.5) to several Latin American countries from China. In Colombia, however, where GM Colmotores has its own stamping unit, the old Sail (Mk 2) is locally manufactured, and the Sail 3 is not yet available.

Rare that GM don't sell the Sail on Argentina. It must be because they offers the Chevrolet Prisma / Onix, that it has an old platform (same as the Chevrolet Classic, same 1.4 92HP engine launched on the late 2000's), and an ugly design (looks like a Corsa married with a Gol). I prefer this Sail (more efficient engines, more technology).

2018 Chevrolet Nuevo Aveo (Mexico)

Chevrolet will soon begin sales of the Sail 3, powered by the 1.5 L 107 hp engine, in Mexico. It will be dubbed Nuevo Aveo. The car will be imported from China. Any decision on local manufacturing will be taken later on.

GM stopped making the T300 Sonic at the Ramos Arizpe plant on August 4th this year as well as the T250 Aveo at the San Luis Potosi plant last week, on December 9th. Apparently this was done to increase Equinox production at both of these plants. Instead, Chevrolet has started importing compact sedans from Asia (Cavalier from China, Beat from India, and now the Sail 3) to cater to the low end of the market.
