Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain Production At San Luis Potosí Plant Idled Until August 23rd4
General Motors has announced that it will extend downtime for the GM San Luis Potosí Assembly plant in Mexico by three weeks. The facility, which produces the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers, has been down since July 19th, and was originally scheduled to resume production on Monday, August 2nd. Now, however, General Motors expects the San Luis Potosí facility to resume production on August 23rd.
According to a recent report from Detroit Free Press, General Motors has updated the production start dates for several of its facilities currently idled as a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. In addition to an extended shutdown of production for the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain, production of the Cadillac XT4 at GM’s Fairfax Assembly plant in Kansas will be down another four weeks, with a scheduled restart on September 20th. Although the facility also produces the Chevy Malibu, the sedan will not resume production at that time.
Additionally, production at the GM Lansing Grand River Assembly facility will resume August 30th, two weeks after the initial restart date of August 16th. The Lansing Grand River Assembly facility produces the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 luxury sedans, both of which have ceased production as of May 10th. Meanwhile, the Lansing Grand River Assembly facility will continue to produce the Chevy Camaro.
Other GM facilities affected by the microchip shortage include GM Flint Assembly, which produces the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size heavy-duty pickups. The GM Flint Assembly facility is expected to return to full production status on Monday following single-shift production status this week.
General Motors will also resume production of its light-duty full-size pickups at the GM Fort Wayne Assembly facility in Indiana and Silao Assembly facility in Mexico on Monday. Both facilities were idle this week.
Finally, GM’s Lansing Delta Township Assembly facility will take another week of downtime as of Monday. The Lansing Delta Township facility produces the Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave crossovers.

Who is supplying the microchips for GM??? Why don’t they take control of the issue? It seems to be affecting them the most.
This is all GM’s fault.
No sympathy here.
Meanwhile Toyota continues to produce its best sellers and win market share.
