General Motors  extends Production At Detroit Factory Until Early 2020

Automobile manufacturer General Motors Co said on Friday it had extended the production at its Detroit Hamtramck plant until January 2020, against an earlier plan to discontinue production in June 2019. It is revamping its operations, which include plant closures and thousands of job cuts, as it looks to boost profitability in the wake of declining U.S. auto sales.

The company said that The Hamtramck plant will continue to produce the Chevrolet Impala and Cadillac CT6 sedans until early next year.

General Motors said, "We are balancing production timing while continuing the availability of Cadillac advanced technology features currently included in the CT6-V - the Blackwing Twin-Turbo V-8 (engine) and Super Cruise (driver assistance system),"

The plant has already discontinued production of the Buick LaCrosse sedan and Chevrolet Volt electric hybrid car.
