General Motors has big plans for the future. Today, the president and CEO of General Motors, Fritz Henderson, has announced that they are planning to hit the market with no less than twenty five new models until the end of 2011. The 25 new models will be launched under four of the company`s brands, as follows: five new Cadillac models, ten new Chevrolet models and a total of 10 other models from both Buick and GMC. We have already told you details about the five new Cadillac models here, so now we will tell you all about the new models of the other three brands.
We will start off with Chevrolet. Maybe the most important new Chevrolet model will be the Volt. The Chevrolet Volt will be a plug in hybrid that is expected to reach an extremely low level of fuel consumption. The Chevrolet Volt will most probably hit the market towards the end of the next year. Some of the other cars that Chevrolet will launch until 2011 will be a city car named Spark, a compact sedan named Cruze, a car that will replace the Aveo and probably a convertible Camaro.
Next up are both Buick and GMC. Mister Fritz Henderson stated that that both Buick and GMC will launch a total of ten new models until the end of 2011. The Buick cars that are expected to be launched until then are the new Buick La Crosse , a compact crossover that seems to be a rebadged Saturn Vue that will also get a plug in hybrid version later on and two new sedans (one of them based on the Opel Insignia, the other one based on the Chevrolet Cruze/Opel Astra Delta platform).
Details about the new GMC models are very little. Leaving aside the SUV launched in April at the New York Auto Show named Terrain, rumors claim that GMC will also launch a small crossover model.
It looks like General Motors has learnt a lot from the financial problems they have suffered and it seems that they now are working extremely hard to be back on track. I am sure that if they would have originally worked this hard, they would have never encountered the financial problems they did.
