Well, we predicted it and it has happened. It was announced today that the Holden brand name will cease to be. The Lang Lang test ground and the design Centre are to close and up to 800 jobs will be lost. I didnt catch the date this will happen.

Sucks balls but I can't say I'm surprised. Did they say what will happen to the dealerships, will they trade under Chevy or another GM name or will they have to switch to another manufacturer?

Dealerships will close
GM are pulling out of all right hand drive markets.
Taxpayer money dried up so they are pulling up stumps. Zero loyalty to their customers

True but they won’t be selling cars and are only offering parts and servicing support for a decade.
Sad day but not surprised

Is someone going to organise a funeral ?
There should be a Public holiday or national day of mourning.

It would show GM how much the Holden brand is loved by Australia.
