Chevrolet builds for the future with Polish factory

CHEVROLET has chosen Poland for production of its next-generation small car, the Aveo.

The manufacturer said producing it in Europe from next year will allow it to satisfy demand for the car and shorten delivery times. It is currently made in Asia.

An all-new three and five-door hatchback model will be assembled at the same location, in Warsaw, from the middle of 2008.

Michael Grimaldi, president and chief executive officer of GM Daewoo, said: ‘Assembly in Europe will help ensure the continued growth of the Chevrolet brand in Europe and give GM Daewoo much-needed manufacturing flexibility to meet the strong global demand for our most popular vehicle.’

The current Aveo, called Kalos in some countries, is Chevrolet’s best-selling model in Europe.
