According to Autoblog, General Motors will be building its next-generation b-segment (subcompact) car in Lake Orion, Michigan. So what does that mean? That means that for the first time in decades, GM will be producing a subcompact in the states, and 1,400 workers get to keep their jobs.
The current Chevrolet Aveo is built in South Korea by GM/Daewoo; the Geo/Chevrolet Metro was built it Canada; the old Pontiac LeMans was also built in South Korea. Not since the Chevrolet Chevette has GM manufactured a subcompact on American soil.
