General Motors has disclosed plans to withdraw Chevrolet from Europe by the end of 2015.

GM has made a rather huge announcement today by revealing their intentions to retire the Chevrolet brand from Europe within the next two years. The large automotive conglomerate says they have taken this decision due to Chevrolet's failure of building a market share on the old continent and also due to the difficult economic situation in Europe.

After Chevrolet's European exit, General Motors will focus its attention on the Opel and Vauxhall duo as they have "growing confidence in the Opel and Vauxhall brands in Europe.” GM vice chairman said Chevrolet's retirement from Europe has nothing to do with the partnership between GM and PSA Peugeot Citroën as this decision has been taken "independent of the PSA relationship."
