Although Australia might be facing a downturn in the automotive manufacturing industry, Holden’s Elizabeth factory just received an additional 1,000 Chevrolet SS model order from the United States due to the cars overwhelming success in America.
The Chevrolet SS models are all left-hand driver and feature the same base as Australias VF11-generation Holden Commodore which were also exported to the U.S. with a Chevrolet badge.
This order also moved Holden to make a decision regarding its local employees redundancy which will help give them time to plan their next career move. A spokesman from the marque said; “The reception from buyers and motoring critics is something that the Australian VF Commodore development team and our Elizabeth manufacturing team are very proud of.”
The Chevrolet SS is a powerful sedan that packs 415-hp thanks to the big 6.2-liter V8 engine that manages to make all the right noises. Add a six-speed manual transmission and you’re good to go.
