New MPV set for Paris Motor Show debut
Tuesday 31 August 2010
General Motors' star brand Chevrolet has released the first images of its new Orlando MPV (multipurpose vehicle) which will premiere at the Paris Motor Show in October.
The seven-seater was first revealed in Paris as a concept vehicle two years ago but has now made the jump into a full production model, Chevrolet's first attempt to crack the European MPV segment.
Available in one gas and two diesel variants, the model will go on sale in early 23011 and is clearly aimed at families, with plenty of storage space and tiered "theater-style" seating so that passengers in the second and third rows have a good view.
By flipping the fascia of the audio panel, passengers can also access a large storage area equipped with a USB port, designed to store and charge personal electronic items.
The Orlando is one of four world premieres Chevrolet intends to stage at the show, one of the biggest of the year, as it attempts to gain a stronger position in the European market.
Over the next 15 months, the General Motors-owned brand will launch seven products, said Chevrolet's European manager Wayne Brannon.
Other manufacturers planning high profile introductions at the show include Peugeot, Mazda and Mercedes-Benz, which is slated to unveil its new CLS sedan.
The Paris Motor Show runs in Paris October 2-17.
