The 80th international Geneva Motor Show beginning in two weeks time will represent a very real look into the future of Chevrolet vehicles in Europe.

Chevrolet Europe president and managing director, Wayne Brannon, confirmed five new vehicles will join the line-up next year as a part of the brand’s centenary year celebrations.

One of those will be the Chevrolet Aveo RS, with the show car set to make its European debut on March 2.

Officially unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month, Chevrolet says the RS is a 101kW 1.4-litre turbocharged hot hatch with an emphasis on personalisation and performance.

“The Aveo RS clearly demonstrates that we are ready to make a big step forward in the small-car segment.

”Coming to Europe in 2011, the new Aveo will be completely in tune with the striking new Cruze and Spark, our all-new compact and mini entries,” Mr Brannon said.

Joining it at the show will be the Chevrolet Orlando people-mover/crossover which will form the basis of an all-new family car in 2011 and is expected to be among the first to reach production.

The Camaro will also join the 2011 European line-up along with at least two other new vehicles that Chevrolet is keeping close to its chest.
