Bittersweet at 100
As General Motors Corp. celebrates a bittersweet 100th anniversary on Tuesday, autoworkers at its plant in Arlington will be affixing Arabic labels to Chevy Tahoe SUVs. Odd as it may seem, the two are related.
Since late summer, when soaring gas prices decimated full-size sport utility sales in the U.S., as many as half of the 850 SUVs built daily in Arlington are shipped to booming markets in the Middle East – an irony even people outside GM can probably appreciate.
However, those markets exist today because GM established operations in Egypt and other major regions of the world 80 years ago.
