General Motors has just announced that the GMC Granite concept will not go into production.
After making quite a splash during the 2012 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, where the GMC Granite has been officially presented to the public, General Motors has recently announced that the concept car won’t hit the production line. The announcement has been made by Jim Federico, the vehicle line executive for General Motors, so Scion has nothing to worry for now, because the GMC Granite won’t be hitting the dealerships in its final production form.
“There’s no Granite. We got a lot of input, pretty good input, but we never moved it out of concept”, as the General Motors vehicle line executive, Jim Federico, said.
The GMC Granite had been officially presented to the public two years ago, at the 2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, and the model should have hit the market in 2013, but the car manufacturer didn’t approve a prototype based on it so it won’t be made. The GMC Granite had attracted the public at the 2010 Detroit Motor Show thanks to its rear doors which open in the opposite way and the versatile interior design. The “unique” doors have been implemented on the Opel Meriva, another small GM crossover, but the interior design remained in a concept stage.
