When you buy a new Chevrolet vehicle, you’re taking part in a long and rich history. A lot of Oceanside drivers ask us, “When was Chevy founded?” and other questions about this vaunted car-builder. So, Quality Chevrolet has a little Chevrolet history below for you to explore!
In the year 1911, Swiss race car driver Louis Chevrolet founded the Chevrolet Motor Car Company with the help of William C. Durant. It would become one of the most recognizable names in the car industry, as well as the founding branch of the General Motors brand. The first Chevy Car came out in 1913, while the first Chevy car with a bowtie insignia came out in 1914.
By 1919, Chevrolet was incorporated into GM, and it was already becoming well known for its trucks, as it still is today with vehicles like the Silverado.
Founded just as automobiles were beginning to grip the American imagination, Chevrolet became one of the great car companies of the 20th century. As each era rose, so did Chevy to the occasion, with vehicles like the Corvette introduced in 1953, technologies like the fuel-injection engine in 1957, and so much more.
Now over 100 years old, Chevrolet continues to innovate to provide great vehicles that are also wallet friendly for any Poway or Carlsbad driver. A great example of how Chevy remains important is the Chevy Volt, introduced in 2010. This plug-in hybrid managed to win North American Car of the Year, the European Car of the Year, and the World Green Car of the Year.
The Chevy Volt is now only available as a pre-owned model, but its legacy is continued in the Chevy Bolt EV, a genuinely affordable all-electric car, so you can buy into the future with Chevy.
