Repair and service Daewoo cars in the eBook

Daewoo was founded on March 22, 1967 by Kim Wu Chung, a young businessman with a degree in economics from Yonsei University in Seoul. In the early years of its existence, the company concentrated on the textile business, and in the following years it was engaged in such diverse businesses as construction or the military industry.

In 1978, Daewoo acquired the auto manufacturer Saehan Motors, which was later renamed Daewoo Motors, leading to direct competition with Hyundai, another great national conglomerate.

To gain a foothold in the market, Daewoo formed a joint venture with General Motors in 1983 and began producing low-cost trucks inspired by other models such as the Daewoo LeMans (Opel Kadett) or Daewoo Tico (Suzuki Alto).

The first non-derivative Daewoo Motors vehicle was the Daewoo Lanos, which was introduced at the end of 1996 in three, four and five door versions.

The first Daewoo model produced at the new Gunsan car plant was the Daewoo Nubira. In March 1997, it was Daewoo Leganza's turn.

In the late 90s, Daewoo Matiz and Daewoo Magnus began to be produced, until the end of its production in 2002, it existed in two versions: classic and sporty.

Daewoo Matiz is a segment A passenger car, produced since 1998. It is a five-seater, originally with only a transverse front three-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive and a five-door body.

The Daewoo Rezzo minivan has been produced since the beginning of 2000. In 2002, the Daewoo Magnus L6 was powered by Daewoo's first inline six-cylinder engine with a new grille and new headlights.

In the same year, Daewoo also introduced the Daewoo Kalos subcompact to replace the Daewoo Lanos. The Daewoo Tico based on the Suzuki Alto has also entered the European market with a length increased to 334 cm, 5 doors and a modified tailgate. This car was produced in Romania and Poland (at the FSO plant).

The Daewoo Group crisis in 1999 led to a drop in production. In October 2002, General Motors bought the automobile subsidiary of troubled Korean conglomerate Daewoo and renamed it GM-Daewoo.

GM Daewoo models are sold under the brand name:

  • Chevrolet worldwide;
  • Daewoo in South Korea and Vietnam;
  • Suzuki in the US and Eastern Europe;
  • Pontiac in America and Eastern Europe.

In March 2011, General Motors renames GM Daewoo to GM Korea. Most of GM's former Daewoo products have been renamed Chevrolet. Almost one in four Chevrolet models were produced in South Korea.

GM Korea has five factories in South Korea and an assembly plant in Vietnam. In addition, GM Korea offers regional and custom vehicle kits for assembly at GM subsidiaries in China, USA, Australia, Germany, India and Brazil.

GM Korea has been producing vehicles and components for Alpheon, Chevrolet, Holden, Opel / Vauxhall and Buick since 2011, which are offered in more than 150 markets across six continents. Korean factories have become one of the world's most important suppliers of spare parts for the GM group.
