It is understood that Chevrolet is the largest brand under the General Motors Group. It was founded on November 3, 1911 and was introduced into China by SAIC GM on January 18, 2005, becoming the third largest brand under SAIC GM. According to the official website, Chevrolet's models currently on sale include Marebo XL, Coruze, Kowoz, Volando, Chuangku RS, Chuangjie, Trailblazer, Explorer, Star Milo and other models.
From the perspective of vehicle positioning, Chevrolet's products cover three major categories: cars, SUV and new energy vehicles. However, as one of the joint venture brands, Chevrolet has a low sense of presence in China. Data show that SAIC GM Chevrolet sold a total of 99300 vehicles from January to July in 2023, of which 17007 were sold in July. In terms of specific models, the top three Chevrolet models sold in July were the Coruze, the Malibu XL and Changxun, with sales of 12502, 1750 and 734 respectively, while the explorer ranked fourth with 631, compared with 407 for the new Star Milo and 310 for the Trailblazers in September last year.

"exchanging quantity with price" is almost one of the measures for many automobile brands to maintain their competitiveness in the rapidly changing car market. according to incomplete statistics, up to now, there are more than 50 car brands and hundreds of models in China. Through factory subsidies or dealer price cuts and other ways to participate in the price war, the discount range is generally 30, 000-120000 yuan, unprecedented in strength.
So, can "price reduction make a profit" boost the sales growth of car companies? There's a good chance! However, "Auto Industry concern" believes that "price reduction" may enable car companies to achieve sales growth in a short time, but it cannot become a magic weapon for car companies to achieve long-term sales target growth. From the consumer's point of view, whether it is fuel vehicles or new energy vehicles, the lower the price, the better. At the same time, it can also encourage car companies to provide more cost-effective products. But for the whole car market, price war is not a long-term solution. Although price cuts can stimulate car sales and ease inventory pressure in the industry, frequent "price wars" will also squeeze the profit space of enterprises.
From the analysis of the current situation of the automobile market, since the beginning of the second half of the year, the "price war" is still the main theme of the automobile market, and September is the first month of the "Golden Nine and Silver Ten" of the automobile industry, and the price war will also lead to a more fierce competition for sales among the major automobile enterprises. Elimination and reshuffle are also inevitable.
