The History Of Chevrolet
Chevrolet was co-founded in 1913 by a Swiss race car driver and engineer by the name of Louis Chevrolet and his business partner William C. Durant. Some very big and notable investors also bought into the company, such as former Buick owner James H. Whiting and R.S. McLaughlin of General Motors Canada. Although the company first began in 1913, their first prototype, the Series C Classic Six was ready months before the company was first incorporated. The Series C Classic Six was introduced that following fall at the New York Auto Show and Chevrolet was officially off and running.
In 1917, Chevrolet merged with General Motors as a separate division and by 1919, the company had 6 branch assembly locations all across the world. Chevrolet regularly competed with Ford and Chrysler in its early years, but in 1929, the company took the marketing lead away from Ford with the debut of their famous “Stovebolt” six-cylinder engine. In 1933, Chevrolet would continue to apply pressure to its competitors on the automotive market when the company released the Standard Six, which was at the time advertised as the cheapest 6-cylinder available in the U.S. Chevy was on its way to making its mark on the automotive world.
Chevrolet was one of the most influential automotive companies in the U.S. during the 50s and 60s, nearly taking over the market. In 1953, the very first Chevrolet Corvette was released and by 1957, the company’s first fuel-injected engine was produced. Chevrolet was a strong leader in the market; in 1963, one out of every ten cars sold in the U.S. was a Corvette. But Chevrolet also has the longevity to boast alongside its industry-wide ingenuity. The small-block V8 engine design has remained in production for the past 65 years and holds the title of the longest-tenured mass-produced engine in the world.
Fast forward to the present day and Chevrolet has continued to gift the world with its innovation. While the Camaro remains the face of the brand and the company’s most recognizable car, it is not the vehicle that wound up being ground-breaking for the company. That distinction is held by Chevrolet’s first plug-in electric car, the Volt. Production began in 2010, and by 2012, the Volt was named the North American Car of the Year and also held the title of the world’s best-selling electric car. It is, to this day, the third-best-selling plug-in electric vehicle ever. But Chevy didn’t stop there.
In 2017, Chevrolet released the Chevy Bolt EV, which was the first affordable electric car on the market that could go for over 200 miles before needing a charge. The vehicle won prestigious award after prestigious award and was even named as one of the 25 best inventions of the year 2016 by Time Magazine. This was the kind of innovation that Chevrolet continually uses to drive the automotive world further into the future and after 107 years, Chevy isn’t slowing down.
