The optional RS package will be mounted on the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze starting with early November. The model was supposed to go into production in early October but unknown quality issues forced the GM leaders to delay everything. Production was supposed to start in Lordstown, Ohio, but it was “held off until it was perfect”, as the company wanted to be sure about the quality of the final product.
GM is hoping that with the new Cruze they will considerably increase their number of units sold over Toyota and Honda. For example in October GM sold 5,048 units, Toyota sold 18,636 Corollas and Honda sold 17,121 Civics.
GMs vice-president of US sales, Don Johnson said that the Cruze is “the workhorse” that will take GM to a new level of sales. They hope to dominate the low-end segment of cars with this model which is not very expensive. 2011 Cruze deliveries will start from November.
