40 years of tradition of automakers Chevrolet can look back on a long history and extensive experience. In the United States is a great car for many to the lifestyle, and so it was always difficult to establish representative of compact classes on the market motors, Chrysler or Ford for American manufacturers such as General. The vehicle Portal auto.de granted a review of the development of the so-called hatchbacks. Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. wanted to know more. Chevrolet was one of the first automakers who put on hatchbacks. The widely swinging, sloping rear door was to be found mainly in cars with compact dimensions. The Chevrolet Vega in the United States was introduced in 1970. American manufacturers tried to counter the rise of foreign vehicles with such innovations.
The Chevrolet Vega should be a particular success and brought new life to the class of the compact car thanks to its sporty design. In later years, hatchbacks were seen as stuffy, only recently, they are again in vogue. The modern models are especially for alternative drive systems. So for example, the Toyota Prius II and III and the Chevrolet Volt take up the idea of the hatchbacks. More information: magazine /… University Service GmbH Lisa Neumann
