With an investment of $120 million in a plant in the central state of San Luis Potosi, General Motors plans to produce the upcoming Chevrolet Trax subcompact crossover just south of the border. Currently, it’s not in the plans to market the little SUV in the United States.
Additionally, another $200 million will be invested in GM’s Silao plant in the Guanajuato state of Mexico for upcoming full-sized truck production next year. Between this investment and the Trax investment, GM Mexico expects to create 1,000 new jobs. Viva el empleo!
