Chevrolet Epica Goes On The Market in China
Chinese Car News, Shanghai GM | CCTMarch 11, 20076:47 am
The Chevrolet Epica (pictured above, click for a bigger picture), otherwise known as the jing cheng in mainland China has formally gone on the market today with a price tag of 130,780rmb to 160,280rmb which puts firmly up against the Brilliance BS4 and BS6 models. Were guessing the target audience will be small families and small to medium businessmen (should we say businesspeople?) The Chevy comes with a 2.0l engine as standard, as well as as having the option of manual or automatic gearing.
We think Chery should sue Chevy as Chery sounds too much like Chevy as Chinese consumers might get confused between the two brands!

The Chery should sue Chevy really would fail in most courts, as GMs Chevrolet division has prior art on its side.

The previous Epica version (GMDAT/Daewoo Magnus/Evanda) was sold in North America from 04 to 06 as the Suzuki Verona (USA and Canada) and the Chevy Epica (Canada only). It didnt sell well, mostly because of the perception of too soft suspension and underpowered 6-cylinder engine. I have an 04 Chevy Epica and love itcomes with leather, sunroof, etc. and a wonderfully smooth 2.5 liter 6 cyl for much less money and better quality, IMHO, than any other GM products available at the time. Unfortunately, the new version isnt available in North Americabut based on my experience with the 04, Id buy one if it was! Or one of your Chinese Buicksthose rock!
