GM provides downtime at 5 crossover factories thanks to chip shortage

Common Motors mentioned Thursday it is adding far more downtime at 5 crossover vegetation in North The usa because of the world-wide microchip shortage.

Four plants will be down from July 19 until eventually Aug. 2:


  • Lansing Delta Township, in Michigan, which builds the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave
  • Spring Hill Assembly, in Tennessee, which builds the Cadillac XT5 XT6 and GMC Acadia
  • San Luis Potosi Assembly, in Mexico, which builds the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain
  • Ramos Arizpe Assembly, in Mexico, which builds the Chevy Equinox and Blazer


GM also said CAMI Assembly in Ingersoll, Ontario, which beforehand was scheduled to be down the very last two weeks of July, now will continue being idle right until Aug. 23. The plant builds the Chevy Equinox. The Detroit Information claimed the up to date manufacturing schedules earlier Thursday.

Past 7 days, AutoForecast Solutions estimated that the industry could shed 6.2 million motor vehicles globally because of the chip disaster. Automakers in North The usa alone could get rid of approximately 2 million automobiles.

Despite the lack, GM has transported about 30,000 Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickups between mid-May well and July 14, as planned, the automaker explained. Generation of the midsize pickups will restart Monday, right after the plant took downtime to get ready for the up coming design year.

The automaker also has begun shipping and delivery motor vehicles without the need of particular options, such as wi-fi charging and gas administration modules, to preserve chips.
