The largest automakers continue to experience problems due to the lack of microchips. General Motors was no exception and was forced to suspend production of a number of models, including the Chevrolet Camaro.
GM’s Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan was supposed to resume operations after a month and a half of shutdown in early May, but the restart dates were postponed to the end of June. The enterprise organizes the assembly of Chevrolet Camaro, Cadillac CT4 and CT5.
Carscoops clarifies that in the next six weeks, the Michigan plant will only release a few prototypes of the CT4 and CT5 Blackwing, but the cars will not be mass-produced.
Several automakers have already released statements about the impact of the chip shortage on production volumes. For example, Nissan will produce half a million less vehicles in 2021 than planned. Renault, in turn, has adjusted the work schedule of European enterprises, reducing the working week to one to three days, and expects that the pace of production will recover only by the end of September.
Peugeot suspended production of the 308 at the French plant in Sochaux for the same reason, and then decided to replace the digital dashboards with analog ones.
