General Motors has reportedly told labor unions in South Korea the next-generation Chevrolet Spark will be built there in early 2015.

The Chevrolet Spark and Sonic (aka Aveo) are relatively new in the United States but the cars have been on sale in international markets for a few years. As a result, General Motor is gearing for the production of the next-generation of models.

According to South Korean labor union spokesman Choi Jong-hak, the next-generation Spark will go into production in early 2015. The Aveo, on the other hand, has been pushed back to 2016 from its original launch date of late 2015.

General Motors declined to comment on the report but Jong-hak said the information was given to union negotiators during wage talks last week. Unfortunately, there's no word on what we can expect but we should learn more in the coming years.
