Uz-DaewooAuto (Uzbek: O'z-DeuAvto) was a joint venture founded in 1992 between the Uzbek state owned UzAvtosanoat and the South Korean based Daewoo Motors (later GM Korea). The company began production of vehicles on 19 July 1996, at the new assembly plant located in Asaka.
The company produced vehicles under the brand name Uz-Daewoo and became increasingly important in the markets of the CIS area. The initiative to establish the Uzbek automobile industry goes back to the early 1990s and the administration of State President Islam Abdugʻaniyevich Karimov.
GM Uzbekistan is the successor of Uz-DaewooAuto since March 2008, although the company continued selling cars under the Uz-Daewoo brand until October 2015, when it was replaced with the new Ravon brand.
- Daewoo Damas (1996–present)
- Daewoo Matiz (2001–present)
- Daewoo Nexia (1996–present)
Following Daewoo's collapse in 2001, and resulting change of ownership, GM Uzbekistan was eventually established in March 2008 as a new replacement joint venture, and the Nexia and Matiz were sold under the Chevrolet badge together with an extended range of GM Korea Chevrolet models produced at the Asaka factory. The joint venture is owned by UzAvtosanoat JSC (75%) and General Motors Corporation (25%). GM Uzbekistan produced 106,334 units during the first half of 2011.
