Additional GM Plant Downtime
General Motors’ Chevrolet Bolt plant, in Orion Township, Mich., will take three weeks of downtime this month as the automaker continues to work through a recall of all Bolts for battery-fire risk.
Prioritizing battery module replacements for existing customers has led to a shortage of battery parts for new-vehicle production. GM notified employees at Orion Assembly that the plant will take downtime from Nov. 15th to Dec. 3rd. Production is slated to resume Dec. 6th.
