GM ceases in August the Vibe production, ending the public availability for Pontiac brand

Though GM last week had announced that it will continue the Pontiac Vibe production via the 2010 unit year, the restructuring carmaker from Detroit now says it has reached a deal with Toyota to stop building those hatchback units at the end of this year in August.

The Vibe car was, unceremoniously, prepared to be the last vehicle Pontiac-badged available to clients. The departure of Vibe leaves just the G6 to be produced, solely available to fleet users for this amazing 2010 unit year.

The Vibe unit was made at the Toyota-GM joint-venture NUMMI assembly plant in California - Fremont. It's expected that General Motors will continue utilizing the factory, though the release from the carmaker says only this: 'GM and Toyota remain in active discussions regarding potential future production at NUMMI'. The Vibe unit was set on receiving just a handful of modifications for this 2010 auto.
