General Motors (GM) will stop production of the Chevrolet Camaro in 2024. This production stoppage is actually a year earlier considering the previous news. What is certain according to Automotive News, the car known as the Bumblebee will stop in the seventh generation. This cessation of production automatically has an impact on the cessation of production of the Chevrolet Camaro at its factory in Lansing, Michigan, United States.

Camaro Replacement Car
Unfortunately, General Motors is still tightly closing the details of the replacement car for the Chevr by Camaro. Caradvice site mentions most likely the electric sports sedan will use the latest battery made by General Motors, Ultium. In addition, the car will be given a choice of two wheel drive systems, namely rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. The choice of two-wheel drive is believed to be able to provide a sporty driving experience.
The euthanasia of the Chevrolet Camaro is known to have occurred because of General Motors’ all-out plan towards electrification. The car company, led by Mary Barra, has poured huge funds, USD37 billion or equivalent to Rp529.7 trillion to produce various types of new electric cars.

The cessation of production also makes the Chevrolet Corvette the only sports car in the Chevrolet body. The Chevrolet Corvette itself is certainly still breathing. Because General Motors will present a hybrid Chevrolet Corvette in 2023.
