Daewoo - the South Korean company specializing on release of cars. The headquarters is in Seoul.
Now automobile building plants make production under the name of "Daewoo" only in Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
The history of the automobile producer Deu originates in 1972 when the Korean authorities formalized permission to production of cars behind the Kia, Hyundai Motor, Asia Motors and Shinjin companies. After a while the production alliance Kia and Asia Motors was formed. And the producer of Shinjin became the company under the name of Daewoo which was founded by General Motors and the Suzuki company in 1972. After a while the young Korean producer received the new name - "Daewoo Motor".
In 1983 the new Korean-American joint venture under the name Daewoo Motors is created. His founders – Daewoo corporation and General Motors. "Le Mans" constructed on the basis of the first generation of "Opel Kadet E" became the first model of brand. Today, without any exaggeration it is possible to tell that Le Mans is the most popular among new foreign cars in the domestic market the car (since 1995 the car carries the name Daewoo Nexia). Its assembly in some years was transferred from Korea to various branches (in Uzbekistan - UzDaewoo, in Russia - "Red Aksay" and in Romania - Rodae). The car went for export to the USA and Canada under the name Pontiac Le Mans, in the local market it became known as Daewoo Racer.
By the beginning of 1996 of Daewoo constructed three large technical centers: in Uortinge (Great Britain), near Munich (Germany) and in Pulyan (Korea). The chief technical lead of projects of the company is Ulrich Bez (in the past the high-ranking manager of BMW).
The South Korean carmaker Daewoo since September, 2002 officially passed under jurisdiction of General Motors, having replaced the name with GM Daewoo Auto & Technology Co (GM-DAT). Since January 1, 2005 the cars sold in Europe (including made in Ukraine) were renamed with Daewoo on Chevrolet. Today the Daewoo brand is familiar to the domestic consumer generally thanks to the cars made in Uzbekistan at Uzdeu plant which remained outside again created company. About further prospects of a brand in Vietnam and Uzbekistan so far it is reported nothing.1 - 50 | 51 - 100 | 101 - 150 | 151 - 152
