General Motors India is scripting the last lap of its two decades old India journey. The Detroit based carmaker that had ceased the domestic business in 2017, is now in the process of winding up the skeletal operations at its facility in Talegaon near Pune.

“GM vehicle, powertrain and CKD (completely knocked down) production will cease at the Talegaon manufacturing facility on December 24, 2020,” said GM India spokesperson adding that GM has also submitted an application for the closure of the site. 

“It rolled out the last model off its assembly line on October 31 for exports,” said a person privy to the development.
