Chevrolet has filled some patents over in Europe, revealing that GM is planning to start badge engineering again with a model that is likely built on the 2013 Buick Encore small crossover platform.
Europe also already has its own Encore that will be badged as both an Opel and Vauxhall Mokka. The Chevrolet version may help improve GM sales in foreign markets such as South America, China and Europe.
As for the U.S., a Chevrolet-branded Encore may not have a place, with larger competition and sold sales numbers for its own larger models.
The Buick Encore will go on sale later this year
