When The Group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced that plants which currently are assembled the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 is joined more SUV-type models worldwide echo the hands to the head. However the following that seems to follow their way is General Motors. The signing of Detroit has seen sales in the market American are preferring this kind of products.
The sector of the automobile American (and world) is redirecting their sales toward the SUV and all land. By the contrary the sedans traditional and coupés have gone slowly losing ground and now is make up with a part more small of the cake. In the case of General Motors, Chevrolet Camaro in what have been year has seen decreasing sales by 9 percent. The Cruze has made it same in a 20 per cent despite having is renovated to first of year.
If we are going to other brands of General Motors, Cadillac, we see how the the ATS and CTS in its combined have been lowering its sales by 17 percent. On the other side we have to the SUV, off-road and pick ups of the group, who have not done more to increase their sales. This, in addition, not only you has happened to General Motors, also you is going to Jeep in FCA and to Ford with its F Series.
Therefore, the Group American is has put hands to the work and going to restructure several of its plants. The road chosen has been the of them layoffs and the investment in these plants. The factories affected by these cuts are the Lansing Grand River in Michigan which lost 839 jobs of the 2,700 currently. The Chevrolet Camaro and Cadillac CTS and ATS are assembled in this factory. The second plant affected is in which the current Chevrolet Cruze is manufactured. Is located in the village of Lordstown, Ohio. In it from the current 4,500 workers that have will be 3,255.
To avoid problems with trade unions and workers, General Motors already has pledged to make investments in affected plants. In the two that lose part of their employees, there will be an injection of 248 million dollars. In addition, also take to out an investment of 668 million of dollars in the plant that have in Toledo and that is dedicated to the manufacturing of boxes of change.
It remains to be seen if the market gives them the reason and more brands end up making entries of this type. It seems that if you have it.
