GM COO says that the U.S. will not get GM minicar

We already know that the Chevrolet Beat won’t be coming to the U.S. However, Ed Pepper, Chevrolet”s Vice President, said that a version of the Groove or Trax would arrive in the U.S. by 2011.

Seems like plans have changed once again. GM’s COO Fritz Henderson told Automotive News today that GM is ruling out a mini GM car for the U.S. for now. He said that while the Smart ForTow has been received well by customers he sees the majority of U.S. consumers sticking to compact cars that are the size of the Chevrolet Volt or Chevrolet Aveo. Someone tell Henderson how well the Honda Fit has done in the U.S.
