Geo Company Description:
Geo was a brand of small cars and SUVs marketed by General Motors and sold through Chevrolet dealerships throughout North America. Originally formed by GM to compete with the growing small import market of the late 1980s, the line continued through the 1997 model year, after which the remaining models joined the Chevrolet lineup. Originally, all Metro models were produced at Suzuki's Hamamatsu, Japan plant. However, in 1990, production commenced at CAMI Automotive, a 50-50 joint venture between General Motors and Suzuki located in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada. Recent years have seen fading consumer interest in the economy compact market, and the last vehicle of the former Geo line, the Tracker, was discontinued in 2004.
