The presentation of the new vehicle took place in Tahskent on March 10.

The seven-seater minivan is equipped with a 1.8-liter engine producing 141 hp with an average fuel consumption of 7.9 liters per 100 kilometers and a six-speed automatic transmission.

The five-door car has three rows of seats in any configuration. The interior can be transformed into a large luggage compartment with the volume of 958 liters with five seats, or 1.594 liters with two seats. At present, General Motors produces this model in South Korea, Russia, Venezuela and Vietnam.

At present, the comments of GM Uzbekistan on planned production and cost of the project are not available.

The production of Chevrolet Orlando is carried out in accordance with SKD technology on the premises of Khorazm Automobile Production Association in the Khorezm region.

As previously reported, in accordance with the decree of Uzbek President Islam Karimov a decision was made on transposition of Damas cars production from the main plant in Asaka to the Khorezm region in 2013.

The project with total cost of $ 49 million envisages organizing of a full cycle of assembly of Damas cars production in 2014 on the base of Khorezm Automobile Production Association.

It is expected that freed automobile production area of GM Uzbekistan which is located in the Andijan region, will be used for the production of new models.

More than two years ago, Uzavtosanoat has transferred the car production on SDK technology from the Andijan region on to some premises of the Tashkent Aviation Production Association named after V. P. Chkalov, where Captiva and Malibu cars are assembled.

In 2007, Uzavtoprom and General Motors signed an agreement to establish a basis for the GM Uzbekistan plant for the production and sale of Chevrolet cars. The American side owns 25 percent of the shares.

Currently, GM Uzbekistan JV produces eight models of cars. Two models of Chevrolet - Captiva and Malibu are produced on SKD technology and the rest - in the framework of full-scale production.

In 2013, "GM Uzbekistan" increased production by 4.5 percent compared with 2012 - up to 246,031 units.
