The Chevrolet Beat was introduced as a concept car in 2007. Although it was planned to be introduced everywhere else, GM did not originally want to bring it to the U.S. market. Executives at GM thought Americans would not want a city car that was smaller than the Aveo.
The 2011 Chevy Spark is being designed in Korea by GM’s Daewoo brand. It should compete directly with the Smart Fortwo and Toyota iQ and hopefully will appeal more to the young, minicar, urban consumer than the current Chevy Aveo does. Let’s face it though it would be hard not to beat the customer appeal of the current Aveo.
