GM Extends Downtime in Kansas and Michigan

General Motors has extended downtime at Fairfax Assembly in Kansas which builds the Cadillac XT4 and Chevy Malibu through at least July 5th and will curtail production at Lansing Grand River in Michigan beginning next week, the automaker said Monday. The Lansing Grand River plant produces the Cadillac CT4/CT5 as well as the Chevy Camaro.

Industrywide, the chip crisis eliminated 121,000 vehicles from the North America production schedule last week, according to AutoForecast Solutions’ tally. GM lost 79,600 vehicles.
