General Motors confirmed today that the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo will go into production in Seoul, Korea next year followed by a U.S.-assembled version of the car in 2012.
U.S. production of the vehicle at the Orion Township plant was reconfirmed last week when along with a $145 million investment that will include production of the Buick Verano at the plant.
We’re still not sure if General Motors will keep the ‘Aveo’ name for the U.S.-spec model since it keeps referring to the car ‘Chevrolet’s new small car.
Refresher: In Europe, the 2011 Chevrolet Aveo will be available with a 4-cylinder gasoline and diesel engine lineup. The gasoline lineup will consist of two 1.2L versions (at 70 hp and at 86hp), a 1.4L unit (100 hp) and a 1.6L (115hp).
