Geo was a brand of small automobiles marketed by General Motors beginning with the 1989 model year and ending with the absorption of the brand into the company's Chevrolet passenger vehicle division in 1998.

Originally formed to compete with the growing economy import market of the late 1980s, the line comprised the following passenger automobiles at various times during its relatively brief history:

Metro, a subcompact hatchback available with two or four doors and as a 2-seater convertible, originally a Suzuki Swift.

Spectrum, a short-lived compact one step up from the Metro, originally an Isuzu Gemini.

Tracker, a light SUV, based on the Suzuki Sidekick.

Prizm, a compact entry-level sedan, based on the Toyota Corolla.

Storm, a low-end coupe, based on the Isuzu Impulse.

Recent years have seen fading consumer interest in the economy compact market, and production of the last car of the former Geo line, the Prizm, was discontinued in 2002.

Most Geo models were actually manufactured by GM in joint-ventures with Japanese import manufacturers. The Prizm was produced at the GM/Toyota joint-venture NUMMI assembly plant in Fremont, California, and the Metro and Tracker were produced at the GM/Suzuki joint-venture CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ontario.

The exceptions being the Spectrum and Storm, being entirely manufactured by Isuzu. This makes the Geo line somewhat similar to Ford's short-lived Merkur brand of the 80s and Chrysler's Eagle.

Geo cars are becoming popular in this generation. Though the brand is a little bit not popular, people are learning to recognize its real beauty. Geo cars are cheap compared to other well known brands though some folks were skeptical about the quality.

I'm not fond of Geo cars but i guess they're somewhat rare and extraordinary. These cars were truly originated from china and were distributed all over the world. Models such as metro and storm are just some of the popular...there are lots more!

Normally I do not read post on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice post.
