From the Motor Trend description, the chart that Mr. Lutz showed had the recent and future model names in tiny print. So the two questions I immediately asked myself were: What is the 2011 Chevrolet Viva? And Why did GM choose to reveal it in this manner? First things first, what is the 2011 Chevrolet Viva and where did it come from?
This is the big mystery at the moment. Speculation says it isn’t the same car as the Spark because it is based on an older Daewoo platform. We do know that the intention is to have the same GM Daewoo engineering team design the car and then bring the production to the U.S. According to GM’s release, the new retooled plant will have a 160,000 per year car capacity and will build small and compact vehicles. The location hasn’t yet been revealed, but good bets are the Lake Orion, Michigan, Wilmington, Delaware and Shreveport, Louisiana locations.
