Cobalt production ends this week; GM complex gets ready to Cruze to the future

LORDSTOWN — After six turbulent years, the General Motors complex here will bid farewell to the Chevrolet Cobalt when the last car rolls off the line this week.

Launched in October 2008 to succeed the Chevy Cavalier, the Cobalt has survived poor reviews, safety recalls and the near-collapse of General Motors. Almost one million Cobalts have been sold to date.

The Cobalt, which will end its run sometime early Wednesday morning, will be replaced by the Chevy Cruze, GM’s highly anticipated new compact model.
