Chevrolet launches Malibu in Uzbekistan

Chevrolet continues the global launch of the all-new Malibu midsize sedan by announcing it will go on sale in Uzbekistan starting in July, following introductions in Korea, the United States, China and Europe.

The Malibu nameplate debuts in Uzbekistan and will be built for the local and neighboring markets at GM Uzbekistan, the manufacturing joint venture between General Motors and government-owned UzAvtosanoat in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

This represents the fifth and newest manufacturing location for the Malibu, which will be sold in nearly 100 countries on six continents.

Meanwhile, close US Volt production for five weeks - because you charge $40,000 for Volt and, for some reason, sales are slow.

Building cars in Russia is exactly what the $50 billion US taxpayer bailout was intended for. Maybe GM can have their next stockholder meeting there, instead of in China.

To survive, GM and others, will have to become international manufacturing entities. This is true for the Big-3, EU's Japan's Korea's, India's, China's cars makers too.

USA has not exported many cars for the last 30 years or so because of low quality at high price.

Meanwhile, BMW builds it's carbon fiber factory in Oregon.

It should be illegal for GM to further betray EVs and transportation with US taxpayer paid for ICE auto factories in Asia.

I am beginning to believe we cannot afford to let GM stay in business.

If it was Caterpillar or Boeing building factories outside the country, there would be cheers that American businesses are going global, but if it is GM there is so much negativity.

No one said much as Honda and others built plants in the U.S. except that they create jobs for American workers. The profits went back to Japan to help build their industries and country and no one said a thing.
