Hans Demant, vice president of engineering for General Motors Europe announced that the 2010 Cruze will also get hatchbacks and station wagons version. Revealed at the Paris Auto Show, the Cruze will go on sale in Europe next March and replaces the Lacetti/Nubira, built by GM Daewoo Auto & Technology.
European models will initially be built in South Korea by Daewoo. Production in St. Petersburg, Russia, is expected in the future for the Russian market only. Production for the US market will be in Lordstown, Ohio.
GM executives want the Cruze to accommodate the "individuality" of markets around the globe, Demant said.
