In a still unconfirmed matter, General Motors honcho Dan Akerson has hinted that the company’s idled Spring Hill, Tenn. assembly plant will begin to churn out more copies of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers that cannot otherwise be produced by the Ingersoll and Oshawa, Ont. assembly plants.
Akerson’s words tie in with Canadian Auto Workers union chief Ken Lewenza’s previous remarks regarding a shift in production of the vehicles from the Canadian plants to somewhere else. However, it seems that Spring Hill will be used for meeting the high demand of the sister crossovers instead of sapping output (and jobs) from the northern factories.
Spring Hill is expected to reopen and produce “two mid-sized vehicles” in the not-too-distant future.
