Detroit, Michigan – General Motors will discontinue production of the Pontiac Vibe by the end of August 2009, as part of its long-term viability plan and the decision to phase out the Pontiac brand.

The Vibe is produced at the New United Motor Manufacturing Incorporated (NUMMI) facility, jointly operated by GM and Toyota in Fremont, California. The Vibe shares its platform and mechanicals with the Toyota Matrix, which is built exclusively in Ontario.

While no replacement for Vibe production has been determined, GM and Toyota remain in active discussions regarding potential future production at NUMMI.
