DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Chevrolet brand will be disappearing from dealerships in Europe by the end of 2015.

General Motors CEO Dan Akerson announced Thursday the company will instead focus on Opel and Vauxhall in Europe but sell the iconic Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro in the region.  The automaker plans to keep selling Chevrolet vehicles in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States where the brand is more competitive.

Cadillac vehicles will enhance the company's European offerings as several new models are going to be introduced over the next three years.
