GM extends Chevy Bolt EV production shutdown to mid-October – TechCrunch

Must read

General Motors is extending the closure of its Orion assembly plant until at least mid-October as a result of a battery pack shortage related to the recently announced Chevy Bolt EV and EUV safety recall. Bloomberg He reported for the first time that the company intends to idle its plant during the week of October 11.

“These most recent scheduling adjustments are being driven by continued parts shortages caused by semiconductor supply constraints from international markets experiencing COVID-related restrictions,” the company said in a statement. “We remain confident in the ability of our team to continue to find creative solutions to minimize the impact on our vehicles with higher demand and limited capacity. Although the situation remains complex and highly fluid, GM continues to prioritize full-size truck production, which continues to be in high demand. “

Last week, GM announced that the closure of the Michigan assembly plant, which began on August 23, would run through September 20, but it is clear that the company has yet to find a solution to the causes of the delay. Meanwhile, GM said it will continue to work with its battery supplier, LG Chem, to update its manufacturing processes and production schedules.

In July, the company began recalling its Chevy Bolts due to fire hazards, and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration advised customers to park their vehicles away from homes and other vehicles as a precaution.

Last week, GM said production of its full-size trucks and full-size SUVs would begin this week, but chip shortages also prompted GM to announce a production slowdown at five other North American assembly plants. Some, such as the Fort Wayne Assembly and Silao Assembly Plants, which produce the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 models, have already reached full capacity as of September 13 after being briefly affected by a global shortage of semiconductors, GM said.

The Lansing Delta Township Assembly Plant in Michigan, which builds the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave, will add an additional week of downtime the week of September 27 and is expected to resume production the week of October 4. July 19. Downtime for the Chevrolet Camaro and Cadillac Black Wing also extended through the week of 27, as well as the previously announced downtime for the production Cadillac CT4 and CT5. Production of the Camaro has dropped since September 13 and the CT4 and CT5 since May 10.

Equinox, Blazer and GMC Terrain production was also delayed until the week of October 11, which are produced at CAMI’s assembly plant in Canada and at the San Luis Potosí assembly and Ramos assembly in Mexico. Production for the Blazer and Equinox has been down since August 23 and August 16, respectively.

Production of the Cadillac XT4, which has been down since February 8, will resume at Fairfax Assembly in Kansas next week. GM said production of the Chevrolet Malibu, which is also at Fairfax and has declined since Feb. 8, will remain low through the week of Oct. 25.
