CHEVROLET orlando

 

This 5/7-seater succeeded the 2011 South Korean Chevrolet Orlando in 2018 only on paper, as while the earlier model was sold fairly worldwide, but not in China, the new one is for China only and as an MPV new to Chevrolet there, though listed as a car.  It is based upon the Buick GL6, also distributed only in China.  The rear suspension is independent in good Chinese manner, rather than a compound crank.  In 2019 26,500 left the factory, while since May 2019 retail sales of the Orlando exceeded those for the Buick GL6, which is only available with an automatic transmission.  The Orlando has a 5- or 7-seat configuration, with the second row a 3-seater.

A 48V mild hybrid system for the automatic by June 2020 reduced the fuel consumption from 6.7 to 6.1 l/100km.

The discontinuation of production of the Orlando in South Korea was because an increasing number of consumers preferred SUVs to MPVs.  Moreover, production had fallen in 2014, after it was decided to stop selling Chevrolets in Europe, which accounted for the larger part of the Orlando export until 2013.  South Korean Orlando production topped 52,000 in 2012.
