Holden production line workers in South Australia have now produced 100,000 Holden Cruze sedans and hatches.

The first locally screwed together Cruze rolled off the production line in 2011 and while Australian sales of the Holden small car probably haven’t met expectations, the 100,000 car milestone would be welcomed by the production team.

For the record, the 100,000th Holden Cruze was a ‘Red Hot’ SRi Z-Series hatch that’s on its way to a new owner in the national capital.

Holden Executive Director of Manufacturing, Richard Phillips, said the milestone was good news for Holden and the Elizabeth plant.

“The Cruze competes in the most hotly-contested segment of the most competitive car market in the world, but it’s the only small car made here in Australia. That’s something we’re very proud of,

“Small car buyers get incredible value with a Cruze, as well as outstanding quality – we put a huge emphasis on build quality for our customers and our internal measures show we are currently building the best-quality cars to ever roll out of this factory.”

Cruze named US fleet car of the year, find out more here.
