GMC (North America)
Wuling (JV) (China)
FAW (JV) (China)
OLD GM brands and dead partnerships:
Suburu (GM once had maybe 10-20% ownership - no more)
Fiat (GM once has some ownership stake - no more)
NUMMI (toyoDUH) where a vehicle was produced in one assembly plant along with toyoDUH products
V6 powertrain on ONE vehicle (honDUH)
Isuzu (diesel powertrains)
Peugot (partial ownership and some plans for sharing overhead and component development)
Congratulation - now you understand better...
I see 10 vehicle brands globally. You will NEVER see all these brands in the same market. This is quite different than your idiotic suggestion that they're "imports" available for import at someone's whim...
Everything else you irresponsibly spouted off or suggested was trash.
Daewoo is not dead. Daewoo's becomes GM Korea. It just like, old GM becomes a new GM, but still GM, except sounds a tiny bit better. Saab is not dead, China-Japan Group bought it "A Chinese-Japanese investment group agreed to buy Saab Automobile and convert the bankrupt Swedish manufacturer into a maker of electric cars. " and another Sweden company bought other part. And who bought the Saturn, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and the Hummer? No one, everyone wants to spit at those brands like trash. GM may give Isuzu and Suzuki back to the Japanese after molested those two companies for a long while, enough to learn every part of those two companies. After GM raped every one of foreign companies then gave them back and claims, I am virgin.
You give way too much credit to GM. Without those foreign brands, your driveway probably still wet with oil. My neighbor Pontiac Grand Prix dripping oil daily, do you know what I found on their driveway? An oil soaking driveway. GM have learned a ton from foreign brands, learned from join venture, learned from buyout, learned using foreign engine. My question is, what did GM learn from having the Oldsmobile, Saturn, Pontiac and the Hummer? Nothing. The only GM learned from those dead brands is failure.
