General Motors Senior Vice President and President, GM International, Mr Shilpan Amin, spent time with the GM team at the brand’s Head Office in Melbourne today.
During his visit to Australia, Mr Amin took the opportunity to walk the line at GM Specialty Vehicles partner, Premoso, in the stand-alone Chevrolet Silverado facility in Dandenong.
“The establishment of GM Specialty Vehicles, which was founded in November 2020, is a proven success bringing highly desirable, niche models to customers in Australia and New Zealand,” said Mr Amin.
“GM ANZ is developing into a true triumph for GM thanks to the focus of the teams working across business units including GM Specialty Vehicles, ACDelco, Chevrolet Racing and Isuzu Trucks NZ.”
As part of the visit to the dedicated full-size truck line, Mr Amin had the chance to see the first right-hand drive pilot of the highly anticipated MY24 Chevrolet Silverado HD, recently returned from its gruelling quality test-trip, spanning almost 5000 kms across the Australian outback.
“I am thrilled to confirm that the new MY24 Chevrolet Silverado HD is scheduled to start arriving in showrooms around Australia later in Q4,” said Mr Amin.
“Following its impressive debut in North America, I anticipate it’s going to be equally as successful in Australia.”
In the time Premoso has been involved with GMSV, more than 8,000 Chevrolet Silverado units have emerged from the remanufacturing process.
