Orion, Michigan... Spring Hill, Tennessee... Janesville, Wisconsin... Come on down! You're the next contestants on The Price Is Right three finalists for the future home of General Motors' planned small car plant.

In a brief press release issued today, GM confirmed that it has short-listed these three existing UAW-GM facilities as the contenders to build the as-yet-unnamed fuel miser first announced on May 29. Could it be a version of the 2010 Chevrolet Spark shown above? Or the so-called "Viva" hatchback that was recently spotted testing at the Nürburgring?

The automaker says it has begun holding discussions with federal and state government representatives, and it hopes to announce the winner within the next few weeks. Official press release after the jump.

Statement On The Plant Selection To Produce The New Small Car For GM

On May 29, GM announced that we will build a future small, fuel-efficient car in the United States utilizing an existing UAW-GM assembly plant that is currently on standby capacity status. The assembly plants in consideration are Orion (Michigan), Spring Hill (Tennessee) and Janesville (Wisconsin). Given the importance of this small car program, and in an effort to move quickly to identify the plant, GM leadership has begun discussions regarding selection criteria with Federal and State government officials from Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin. We hope to identify and announce the future production site of the small car within the next several weeks.
