What who…"completely rubbish " because I said the name plate has sold over 35 million ? You have other statistics I don’t know that say differently…or do you not know what NAME PLATE means. I’ll take that as a yes.
. Model names are changed when a car becomes less viable as a product to the manufacturer. Whether it evolves or changes is totally irrelevant as all cars have. Comparing Ford to,Corolla is faulty reasoning me thinks.
The Corolla name plate has sold 35 million whether you believe it or not, because the name plate is succesful. The reasons it is succesful have been the same, year after year after year after…Whether the motor changes or they add an mp3 output is totally not the point.
They were selling comparibly well to ALL other cars in it’s class with fwd, rwd, with a 1.6 later with a 1.8 and when they threw in the 2.4, they worked like a corolla should in Toyota’s scheme. Do you get it ? They GM, changed the name Cavalier in 2005 for good reasons. GM didn’t think it was viable as a name plate. If it has tested,rated and sold as well as a comparable Corolla, 35 million, me thinks you would still see the name plate, “Cavalier” on the market. If GM had sold better cars, including the Cavalier, it might not have needed a bailout. Notice…ford still sells the F150 name plate too…for the same reason. But there is a good reason you won’t see the Pinto name plate return soon.
