GM will reconsider its decision to close some plants

One of the factories of the concern, which are still idle, can again produce the model Chevrolet Cruze, which has been discontinued.

American General Motors in November last year spoke about a serious restructuring of its model range in North America. Although in its announcement, the automaker did not directly say that some of its factories would be closed, but given the fact that these enterprises do not produce cars, there is no reason to keep them in working condition.

 One such plant is located in Lordstown, Ohio. Its capacity was already idle earlier this month. According to some publications, the management of General Motors decided to resume production for some time.

  The journalists of the publication GM Authority found out about a certain deal offered to the GM concern by a businessman from Cleveland and the owner of several dealerships. The essence of this deal was allegedly an agreement to buy an unknown number of copies of the Chevrolet Cruze, built at the factory in Lordstown, which will remain in the local market and play a role in the new carsharing service, similar to Uber. The report further states that the proposal would be large enough for the plant to work in two shifts for five years.

  It is reported that information comes from reliable, but unknown sources. According to representatives of the American GM, the Cruze model was discontinued due to a “market decline in consumer demand for passenger cars.” Reportedly, no specific reference was made to the proposed deal by GM. In addition, the businessman allegedly signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Not so long ago, our edition wrote that the new generation of the sports coupe Chevrolet Corvette is being tested by the president of GM.
