Last Holden rolling out also to be the last Australian built car

Last Holden rolling out also to be the last Australian built car

The automotive industry in Australia has officially shut shop with the Holden Commodore being the last car to roll out of the kangaroo land. After Toyota and Ford bailed out over the last two years citing rising costs, Holden, the GM subsidiary and Australia’s pride has bowed out as well.

Holden, in spite of being an American company, blended incredibly well with the Australian gusto, just like Suzuki did with Maruti in India. Holden’ signature cars, the Commodore muscle car and small low slung Ute, will now be lost in the realms of time as these products were built specially for the Australian audience. 

Now that all the car manufacturers in Australia have shifted base to Asian countries, the country will have to import every car. Australian industry experts blame the government for not providing a stimulus or sops for the automotive industry to continue operations. Sadly, it marks the end of an era in the history of cars down under.
