Huh. You'd think Canada would be less bothered by that since they have far less "small government" and libertarian beliefs compared to America.I am absolutely positive that this car will be a huge hit, however in Canada people will eagerly buy German built car instead union made "domestic". Bailout disaster really hurt GM and that why GM Canada sales are in a dump.
This is very regional, to the west in Alberta and Saskatchewan I'd say this is more true. People here hate big government and the so-called nanny state almost as much as Texan's do. Go east to Ontario and Quebec, where 1/2 the population is, and the attitudes are much different. I think the bailout was part of the problem, but more so is that Canadians love small cars that are fuel misers. GM has not been perceived to have a lead in such products and this surely contributed to the decline in sales.Huh.
