The Holden VE Commodore is a full-size car that comes as a 2-door ute, a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. There are also variants by Holden's performance arm, Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) which go under an HSV badge.  It has been produced by Holden, a General Motors subsidiary, since 2006. It also has been badged as a Holden VE Berlina or a Holden VE Calais

The Holden Commodore VE superceded the previous Holden Commodore VZ and is the 14th Commodore version produced by Holden since 1978. This is however the first Commodore that was designed specifically by and for the Australian market.The designers effectively started with a "clean sheet" and after 7 years and A$ 1 Billion came up with the VE.
