GMSA confirms Spark production

“And the third model line GMSA plans to build in South Africa is… the Chevy Spark! President and managing director Edgar Lourencon announced on Thursday that the new Spark, launched earlier this year and currently imported from Korea, would go into local production at the company’s Struandale Plant in Port Elizabeth by the end of next year.

It will be built alongside the next Isuzu KB and next Chevrolet Corsa Utility as part of a line-up that will achieve a joint annual production figure of 60 000 units by 2013. In terms of the Automotive Production and Development Programme, due to come into force that year, manufacturers have to build at least 50 000 vehicles a year to qualify for incentives.”
