General Motors and Holden are instating a new plan for the new Chevrolet to help to protect Holden’s South Australian workforce and making sure the critical export program has a “bullet proof” long-term future.
The plan outlined by GM's North American President Mark Reuss to Drive.com.au has Holden's factory in Adelaide building an SS once an order is placed and then shipped off to the U.S. This process means a ninety-day wait for the vehicle to arrive, but it also means there will not be a fire sale due to the abundance of vehicles sitting on dealer lots (see Pontiac GTO and G8).
“It’s all about building a consistent order bank for Adelaide so that we don’t put people on and then take them off again,” Reuss said. “I went through all of that before, and it was awful. And that’s because it just wasn’t the right business.
