UzAuto Motors and General Motors have reached an agreement to launch sales of cars manufactured in Uzbekistan in export markets under the Chevrolet brand.
From March 2020, Spark, Nexia and Cobalt will be the first models available in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus under the Chevrolet brand. Sales of cars under the Ravon brand in Russia and the CIS countries will cease by mid-2020.
“The right to use the Chevrolet brand in foreign markets was granted to the domestic manufacturer due to the high quality of cars, which fully complies with the standards set by General Motors,” UzAuto Motors reported.
UzAuto Motors will manage the distribution of Chevrolet models manufactured by the company in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. The dealer network will be created on the basis of a number of current General Motors Russia dealers, part of existing Ravon dealers and authorized Chevrolet service centers, taking into account their geographical location and degree of compliance with Chevrolet brand standards.
“Working under a single brand will open up new opportunities for the further development of the automobile industry of Uzbekistan and sales in export markets,” the Uzbek manufacturer believes.
Customers, who purchase Ravon vehicles, will be able to continue to receive services at authorized UzAuto Motors service centers. For customers who have purchased Chevrolet Spark, Nexia and Cobalt cars manufactured by UzAuto Motors, the warranty, as well as after-sales services and spare parts sold by UzAuto Motors through its dealership network, will remain.
