General Motors operates in Uzbekistan with a sole production plant capable of building around 250,000 cars per year. According to Wards Auto, GM Uzbekistan is gradually increasing production of some forgotten nameplates.
Uzbekistan is still home to the Chevrolet Cobalt, Tracker, and more. Other models are continuations of last-generation cars that haven’t set a tire inside a new Chevrolet dealership in years. They include the Aveo (Nexia) and Matiz (Spark). The country also still sells the Damas van, which looks incredibly dated alongside the Tracker, which is essentially a rebadged Chevrolet Trax.
Production of the cars grew 50 percent in 2017 over 2016 levels to 135,471 cars total and GM is reportedly banking on growth to help fuel sales in the Middle East and Africa in the future. As long as locals are OK with their goofy looking Cobalt redux, thing seem to be going swimmingly.
