It’s official! General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV) will launch in Australia during the fourth quarter of this year effectively replacing Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) in the wake of Holden’s local demise.
The other big news is the newly formed GMSV will offer the new factory right-hand drive Corvette across its dealer network which is expected to include the majority of HSV’s 65 outlets.
Keen buyers will still need to be patient, the Corvette isn't due to arrive locally until the end of 2021 or early 2022.
In the period after GM’s decision to axe Holden, there was some doubt as to whether the promise to bring the Corvette to Oz would eventuate.
HSV’s work to import and convert the Silverado 1500 pick-up will continue under the GMSV banner. The American truck is converted from left-hand drive by the Walkinshaw Group in Clayton, Victoria.
Walkinshaw is expected to reengineer other models from GM’s global portfolio, though no announcement has been made.
Following Holden’s departure, General Motors will retain around 200 staff in Australia.
