GM plants in India and Uzbekistan will start assembly of GM’s new GMDAT-developed mini-car – the Matiz Creative/Chevy Spark – model from early next year.


Knocked down kits will be supplied by the Korean plant, The Korea Economic Daily reported.


“The union agreed with the company on the (plan) to produce the Matiz Creative model in India and Uzbekistan under the condition the cars made there are sold only in those countries,” the GM Daewoo union leader, Ryu Jo-hwan, was quoted as saying in the report.


GM Daewoo, the South Korean unit of GM, is also considering producing the model in other countries such as Vietnam and Colombia, the report said.
