GM scraps historic Holden car brand

The American car giant said it will wind down Holden sales, design and engineering operations in Australia and New Zealand by next year.

The move will end 160 years of the Holden name’s association with Australia. The company was founded as a saddle maker in South Australia in 1856 before it started building vehicles in 1908.

Holden was bought by GM in 1931, beginning their 89-year history as a combined entity.
