New Holden Commodore Prices and Specifications

Holden has today kicked off recruitment for production of the local Cruze sedan - set to begin early next year - and the recently-revealed VE Series II Commodore at its Elizabeth plant in South Australia.

Holden's long-planned switch to local manufacture for the Cruze sedan has necessitated the return to a second shift.

Holden also recently announced that it would begin exporting the Commodore to Brazil. The Cruze hatchback - revealed last weekend - will make its debut on the company's assembly line later in 2011.

“The recruitment is good news for the manufacturing industry in South Australia and shows we are turning the corner this year,” Holden Manufacturing Operations Executive Director Martyn Cray said.

“There’s a real sense of excitement at Elizabeth - we started building Series II Commodore this week and we’re very happy with all the work being done to introduce Holden Cruze to the production line early next year.”

The Cruze is set to be the only locally-built small car in Australia.

Starting on November 15, the second shift follows confirmation in April that Holden would slow production of the current-generation VE Commodore ahead of the Series II launch.

The reintroduction of a second shift to Holden's production schedule comes after the carmaker switched to a single shift in April last year, to match production to slowing sales.

To preserve jobs under the reduced shift plan, Holden reached agreement with its employees and the unions on alternating work arrangements and reduced shifts and hours, ranging from one week on, one week off, to one week off in twelve.
