History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Chevrolet Lumina page on 26 September 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Chevrolet Lumina is a nameplate that was used by the Chevrolet division of General Motors used from 1990 to 2001. As the Chevrolet division sought to consolidate its mid-size nameplates under a single product range, the Lumina was offered as a two-door coupe and a four-door sedan; a mechanically unrelated minivan was produced under the Chevrolet Lumina APV nameplate.

Produced upon the GM10 platform (later designated the GM W platform), the Chevrolet Lumina replaced both the Chevrolet Celebrity and Chevrolet Monte Carlo; smaller than the Chevrolet Astro, the Lumina APV replaced the Celebrity station wagon. In 1995, the Chevrolet Lumina was redesigned, with the two-door coupe adopting the Monte Carlo nameplate. For 2000, the Lumina was replaced by the revival of the Chevrolet Impala nameplate, retaining the W platform through the 2016 model year.

Both the first and second generations of the Chevrolet Lumina were sourced from Oshawa Car Assembly in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. From 1998 to 2013, GM subsidiary Holden manufactured the Chevrolet Lumina in Australia as a rebadged version of the Holden Commodore (for Middle East and South Africa export).
