Chevrolet adds North American Aveo production in Mexico

Up until now all examples of Chevrolet's smallest car, the Aveo have come from GM's South Korean affiliate, Daewoo. With high gas prices causing buyers to snap up Aveos at a similar rapid rate to all other small cars, GM is now adding more production capacity. Aveos are now rolling off a new line at a factory in San Luis Potosi Mexico at the rate of 30 cars per hour. Not only is the Aveo fairly thrifty in its use of petroleum, the new factory itself has been designed to have a minimal impact. All lighting in the facility is motion activated and no water is discharged. Instead water is recycled with in the factory. Aveos from the Mexican factory will be sold throughout North America.
