DETROIT -- General Motors Co. will devise a plan this quarter to produce more Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain crossovers, Mark Reuss, president of GM North America, said today.
The CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, is already working on three shifts. But the two crossovers are in short supply -- seven days for the Equinox and 13 for the Terrain, says GM.
Today at the auto show, Reuss said he is looking at four ways to increase CAMI capacity. But long term, GM may reopen plants, he said.
“I want our assets utilized,” Reuss said. “We sit with assets that aren't utilized. That's a problem.”
He declined to say which plants GM was considering opening, but he did mention GM's plant in Spring Hill, Tenn.
“We’ve got a damn good plant in Spring Hill sitting idle,” he said.
He added that production of the Buick LaCrosse sedan and Cadillac SRX crossover also is limited by capacity problems.
