THE 250 000th Chevrolet Utility has rolled off the production line at the Struandale plant in Port Elizabeth.
The quarter of a millionth unit, a 1.8 Utility SPORT, marks a 17 year production period of one of South Africa’s most loved light commercial vehicles. Now in its third generation, the Chevrolet Utility is built with the South African customer in mind, a reliable vehicle for work and leisure.
“We are proud of the fact that this is a South African built bakkie. Our Struandale plant is efficiently geared up for light commercial vehicle manufacturing and we pride ourselves in building quality vehicles for our customers,” said Ian Nicholls, President and MD of General Motors Sub-Saharan Africa Operations.
Nicholls further said the Struandale plant was recently awarded a higher manufacturing quality status by General Motors Company after an international audited was conducted. “This re-enforces the future of manufacturing at the facility and is a huge positive if the company is to be awarded any contracts to build new model vehicles going forward. It in essence means that the manufacturing standard for Struandale has improved based on the globally recognised manufacturing quality standards.”
