Holden Camaro trademark registered in Australia

Holden Camaro trademark registered in Australia

The biggest clue yet of Holden introducing the Camaro has surfaced, in the form of General Motors registering a trademark for the Camaro name in Australia.

According to the IPAustralia government website, GM LLC lodged a trademark on November 20 this year. And it is listed as being on its way to being filed and approved. It covers four classes, including 16, 25, 35, and 37, the latter of which cover retail services relating to the sale of motor vehicles and parts.

Another trademark is also found to have been registered, since 2009 with constant renewals, under class 12 which is simply automobiles.

Of course, none of this is a definite confirmation that Holden is planning to introduce a Camaro, but it’s a pretty darn good sign. GM may simply be protecting the name so no other company can use it.

We’ve heard plenty of rumours about the Aussie Camaro. The last we heard it was HSV that might end up doing the right-hand drive conversions and selling the muscle cars, with a Chevrolet badge on the front.

There’s also a chance Holden will import the Camaro from the US already converted. If this is the case it would no doubt be called the Holden Camaro.

With this latest finding, and the fact time is running out for Holden to officially provide details on its future sports car that it has previously promised, we expect something concrete to surface really soon. We’ll keep you updated.
