"Wherever I go during the Games, everyone wants to know what will happen to the vehicles once the events have wrapped up," said Tom Laurie, GM of Canada's manager of Olympic partnership. "We've been flooded with requests from Olympic revelers wanting to take home more than just a pair of red mittens. Canadians want to take advantage of this special opportunity to own a vehicle that was part of our country's Olympic legacy."
GM dealerships from Squamish to Hope are already taking customer deposits on Olympic fleet vehicles, which will be ready for pick up beginning in mid-March. Dealerships outside the area will bid on the remaining vehicles in an auction, and Canadian customers across the country are encouraged to contact their local dealer for details. All fleet vehicles will be specially-priced and permanently marked with a commemorative Vancouver 2010 medallion adorned with the iconic inukshuk symbol and Olympic rings. Available models include:
* Chevrolet Equinox, Malibu (Hybrid), Impala, Traverse, Suburban & Tahoe
* Buick Lucerne & Enclave
* Cadillac DTS, CTS Sport Sedan & Sport Wagon, Escalade (Hybrid) & SRX
* GMC Acadia, Terrain, Yukon (Hybrid models available) & Yukon XL
As the Official Vehicle Partner of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, GM of Canada is proudly providing 1,500 vehicles for the Paralympic Winter Games. The Paralympic vehicles will be made available to Canadians in April.
"The vehicle fleet was brought to life by the thousands of Vancouver 2010 volunteers who drove them," said Laurie. "As a 'thank you' to those 46,000 volunteers, GM has given them each a $1,000 credit towards the purchase of a GM vehicle."
