And start Malibu production…
The 3.6 million-square-foot Detroit Hamtramck plant, opened in 1985, operates four days a week, 10 hours a day, on one shift employing 1,200 hourly and 130 salaried workers.
GM confirmed it also might extend the summer shutdown there, a move first reported by Ward’s Auto.
Chevy is preparing to launch production of the 2013 Malibu this summer at Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly.
Volt sales bounced up last month, from 603 in January to 1,023 in February. It outsold Nissan’s electric Leaf for the month. The Volt’s best sales month was December, when 1,529 cars were sold.
GM sold about 7,700 Volts in 2011, below its target of 10,000. GM last month abandoned its sales target of 45,000 for 2012, saying it would match “supply to demand.”
