2009 Detroit Show: Chevy Spark, Orlando Coming to the U.S.

January 11, 2009

The Chevy lineup will expand over the next two years with the addition of the Spark subcompact and the Orlando MPV.

GM's press conference at the 2009 Detroit auto show revealed that both vehicles would be coming to North America--and Chevrolet's Ed Peper confirmed to TheCarConnection.com that both are destined for sale in the U.S.

While GM showed the concept version of the Spark--the Chevrolet Beat, part of a trio of concept cars from last year's show circuit--it did show a single photo of the five-door production car due late next year. The Orlando concept from the recent Paris auto show (as shown here) also rolled on stage, along with the 2010 Cadillac SRX, 2010 Buick LaCrosse, and the 2011 Chevrolet Volt--as well as the cool Cadillac Converj concept we brought you earlier today.

There's more news to come from GM--stay tuned as TheCarConnection.com reports live from the show floor at Detroit's Cobo Hall.
