USA: GM-Lear in joint van venture.
Car giant General Motors is teaming up with Lear, the fifth largest auto supplier in the world, to produce full-size luxury vans in the fourth quarter for sale, in 2001, according to Automotive News (28/6/00). GM plans to build between 10,000 to 15,000 Chevrolet Express LT and GMC Savana SLTs in Wentville, Mo., every year. These vehicles would then be sent to a nearby Lear site – probably Wentzville – to have complete interiors alongside some exterior trim installed. They would then be shipped back to GM for distribution to dealers.
