The time has come … the last Cobalt to ever be produced by Chevrolet will come off the line tomorrow at 3am in the Lordstown General Motors Plant.
The plant in Ohio has been producing Cobalts since 2004 and will shut down for two weeks, starting Monday, to re-vamp in order to produce Chevrolet’s new sedan: The Cruze.
It has been a great run for Lordstown, producing nearly one million Cobalts in the last six years … but it is the start of something new and exciting, at the same time.
The plant will start manufacturing some Cruzes on July 12th and will work out all of the manufacturing kinks before the launch of the Cruze in September of this year.
It is sad to see the Cobalt go … but it is great to see the new and exciting Cruze step into our lives. Be on the look out for a post on the 2011 Cruze Specs…coming soon!!
