GM to produce Aveo at new Mexican plant

Stephen Downer - Automotive News

General Motors will produce a subcompact car based on the Aveo platform at the assembly plant it is building in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

The plant, 250 miles northwest of Mexico City, is scheduled to be completed in June 2009.

"It looks as though it is the Aveo," a senior representative of the Mexican supplier industry told Automotive News.

GM Daewoo Auto & Technology Co. in Korea builds the current Aveo. GM sells it in Mexico as the Pontiac G3 and in Canada as the Pontiac Wave. The Mexico-built car will be exported to the United States and Canada.

In July, Tina Jantzi, senior manager of North American forecasting at J.D. Power and Associates, said GM will build the G3 in San Luis Potosi.

Another major GM supplier in Mexico said: "They're planning to assemble 130,000 vehicles a year there. They're talking about a Korean model."

Cool... I wonder what effect this will have on how well put together it is?

The next-gen has to become more dynamic, more spunky and lively for it to compete with the other tiny cars. Right now it's sort of moribund, imo.
