General Motors announced on February 9th it was extending production cuts at three North American plants due to the ongoing global semiconductor chip shortage. The production cuts will extend until at least mid-March. The plants impacted by the extended downtime include GM’s Ingersoll, Ontario factory as well as plants in Fairfax, Kansas and San Luis Petosi, Mexico. “Semiconductor supply remains an issue that is facing the entire industry,” GM spokesman David Barnas said. “GM’s plan is to leverage every available semiconductor to build our most popular and in-demand products.” Vehicles affected by the downtime include the Chevy Equinox, GMC Terrain. Vehicles to be left incomplete include the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon and Chevy Blazer.
