Thanks, we will need a little luck!
Hyundai has a fantastic and fresh lineup! Honda is going to keep fighting, Ford is on a rocket ship ride, VW has aspirations of world domination. And well, Toyota is Toyota!
On the bright side Chevy just sold 1.1 million vehicles Globally, the best 1st quarter, ever. It's a start! With some hard work, good planning and a little luck maybe we have a decent year!
Keep Wishing us luck!
JoelOnce I got past the abundance of exclamation points, a couple of things struck me about the note.

First, 1.1 million in global sales for Q1 is a solid number. My guess is this includes fleet sales as well as retail. But either way a 4+ million unit year for the Chevy brand would be a success in any era.
Second, unlike the Detroit of my youth that dismissed foreign competitors as nothing more than a cheap imitation of the real thing, there's no denial here. As they say, admitting you have a problem is a first step to finding a solution.
Finally, I like that he's not afraid to have a little fun with me. This clearly wasn't a canned response from the corporate PR department. And if I was a little snarky in my commentary, he's entitled to be just a little facetious in his response.
Well played, Mr. Ewanick. Well played.
