As General Motors continues to work through its high inventories, the American automaker has idled its Michigan plant where the Chevrolet Sonic and Buick Verano are produced.
Last week, GM halted production at its Lake Orion assembly plant in order to adjust inventory, and around 1,800 workers at the plant will return on January 2 after a scheduled holiday break. Recently, the American automaker confessed that its U.S. inventory levels had hit 788,200 units – the highest level since April 2009.

Shifts have also been cancelled in Lordstown, Ohio where the Cruze is assembled along with the Fairfax, Kan. plant where the Malibu and Buick LaCrosse are built. GM has also increased its incentives this month in hopes of clearing excess inventory on dealership lots.
