"It certainly is a good start for a new sales year, especially on the back of a record-breaking 2012. We still have a lot of work to do, not just in Thailand but across the Southeast Asian region, to ensure we maximize our continued growth," said Chevrolet Sales Thailand and GM Southeast Asia Operations' new Vice-President of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, Gustavo Colossi.
"In our continued efforts to sustain growth, a high level of product and customer-care quality must also be achieved at all times," Colossi added.
To keep its growth momentum in 2013, Chevrolet will be focusing on ensuring a high level of quality in its products and customer-care services. The automaker will also continue to expand its brand footprint and accessibility to its products and services through a strong regional dealership expansion plan. In addition the all-new Chevrolet Spin multipurpose vehicle (MPV) will be revealed at the upcoming Bangkok International Motor Show 2013.
In Thailand, new dealerships are scheduled to open including two in the Nakhon Pathom and one in the Bueng Kan province.
