Yeah..GM LOVES canceling vehicles that would sell like mad over here.
I'm still saddened about the G8 ST.

Was that to be essentially a Cruze wagon in the way that the HHR is a Cobalt wagon?

Yep, it was to replace the HHR eventually.

This is weird, dunno how they'll fill that gap now, unless they just re-design the HHR.

It wasn't a direct replacement to HHR as this is a 7 passenger crossover.

Although debates are raging over whether or not this was a good move, its main competitor, the Mazda 5, doesn't exactly sell that well.

Won't be anywhere in the same pricepoint though.
The Orlando would probably be around $20,000..the Volt is going to be way over $30,000..a crossover version of that would be pushing $40,000 easy.

This is true, but to put the idea and whatnot out there ahead of the import brands would be a major coup.
