General Motors is extending production cuts at some of its North America factories due to a chip shortage that has roiled the global automotive industry, the U.S. carmaker said on Thursday.
GM’s Lansing Grand River assembly in Michigan will extend its downtime through the week of April 26.
The company said it has not taken downtime or reduced shifts at any of its more profitable full-size truck or full-size SUV plants due to the shortage.
The news was first reported by CNBC.
