The following is an article about the future of General Motors and some of the new products they will offer in the very near future. One of these is supposedly based on a design that came from Korea. Once you read about it, think K Car.
"'The car that's going to save GM,' suggests automotive consultant James Hall, of 2953 Analytics in Birmingham, Mich., 'is the Chevy Cruze, and the derivatives that will come off it.'
The Cruze is a fuel-efficient compact designed in Korea that will sell in markets throughout the world. It goes on sale in North America in the first half of 2010. A small seven-passenger van built off the same platform, the Chevy Orlando, is expected a little later. By selling in huge volumes, perhaps as many as 1.7 million worldwide, the Cruze family could allow GM to be profitable on small cars for a change."
