Arrow 2011 Camaro coupe and Camaro convertible to be available in Europe next year

As reported on homepage.

GM has confirmed today that it will be launching 5 new models in Europe in 2011. Among these 5 new models will be the Camaro coupe and Camaro convertible, says Chevrolet Europe president and managing director Wayne Brannon.

Quote:
European consumers will get a taste of Chevy's future offerings at the Geneva Salon as the firm will show off the Orlando concept alongside the Camaro and the Aveo RS, which will have its European premiere after its world debut at the North American International Auto Show last month.

It is expected that Chevy will introduce the production versions of both the Orlando MPV and the Camaro Convertible by the end of the year.

No specific details were released about the Euro-spec Camaros, and even though there has been talk in the past of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine churning out around 260HP, unfortunately for those living in European countries that base tax on engine displacement, chances are that Chevy's muscle car will be offered with the same 304HP 3.6-liter V6 and 426HP 6.2-liter V8 engines as the North American model.

Good to hear there going overseas but the V-6 and V-8 taxes in Europe is alot. Most people can't afford it and also the gas prices there are crazy high.

First of, great news and worth de-lurking to comment on! This means I'll be able to get the Camaro cheaper since the import dealers will no longer be the only dealers selling it.


Now, for some replies:

Maa107, they're already prices double for a "rare and new" import, and they will be cheaper then that.

Andro, yes we have higher taxes. And we also have public health care that is great. And we have great schools. And great public transportation. Some of the things that the taxes pay for. Would I like some lighter taxes on bigger engines? Sure, but it's not so high that it's unattainable. I can easily pay for an SS if I save up some and plan my economy. The latter I've already done for quite a while. Plus I see plenty of cars with V6 engines daily, and there's even some V8s out and about in winter (in summer they're aplenty).


As long as they don't make huge changes to it, this is all good.

I'd expect it to be available around the same time.

So will it be cheaper in the US or Europe?

more expensive in Europe.
Tax on engine displacement will hurt it and shipping from CAN to EU is more than what we pay to simply ship South...
