Great news for Ingersoll! Once again, nothing for Oshawa. The Bolt EV going to be built in Michigan. Lots of announcements from GM and its a contract year for the UAW this year and Unifor next year.

So it seems the Mexican plant will take overflow production, replacing Spring Hill and Oshawa. Makes sense.

The question for Oshawa is what product is available for them in the immediate future, assuming XTS and Regal are gone by 2017? With one exception, all the the 2016/17 product would have been allocated:

Canada
Oshawa, Ont – Buick Regal (ends 2017, production shifts to Germany), Cadillac XTS (to be discontinued?), Chevrolet Impala (W) (to be discontinued)
Ingersoll, Ont- `17 Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain

USA
Spring Hill, Tenn- `16 Cadillac XT5, `17 GMC Acadia
Lansing Delta, Mi- `17 Buick Enclave, `18 Chevy Traverse
Lansing GR, Mi- Cadillac CTS, Cadillac ATS, `17(?) Cadillac Convertible, `16 Chevy Camaro
Orion TS, Mi- Chevy Sonic, `17 Buick Verano, `17 Chevy Bolt
Hamtramck, Mi- `16 Cadillac CT6, `16 Chevy Volt, Chevy Impala (E)
Fairfax, Ks- `16 Chevy Malibu, `16 Buick La Crosse
Bowling Green, KY- Chevy Corvette
Lordstown, Oh- `17 Chevy Cruze
Arlington, TX- K2XX SUV
Flint, MI- K2XX
Ft Wayne, Ind- K2XX
Wentzville, MO- Chevy Colorado/ GMC Canyon

Mexico

You won't see any news for oshawa until the contract is settled, Cami has a different Union and their contract was settled already.

It's the same union now, since the BK. The contracts are very similar. Where once the settlement dates, wage rates, etc. were different, they were made the same (CAMI used to settle one year after Oshawa). CAMI employees got a raise but lost at least 2 weeks of vacation, etc. A lot of small details such as length of lunch period are still different. CAMI for instance doesn't have sick time. Oshawa does.

The only thing we really lost are SPA weeks, really liked them. We don't have much problem getting time off. Being in trades lunch can be whenever we want, not a problem especially on midnights.

From what I know the XTS is going to continue for at least a year along side the CT6

Next generation Lacrosse production is moving from Fairfax to DHAM
Regal production moving to Germany is a rumour.
There will be a new 2016 ELR made at DHAM

With Lacrosse moving to DHAM, Oshawa will likely become the sole plant for Impala production.

Oshawa has production plans through 2017. Which means they need new product for 2018. I wouldn't be surprised if at least a couple of these are in those plans:

While the Equinox production at CAMI is great news I'm a little surprised. Personally I would have had Ingersoll do Terrain and Envision production then move the Equinox to Mexico. Even if CAMI just built only the Equinox it doesn't have the capacity.

Also I think GM might move Encore production to Mexico as well.

If I had to guess today, I'd put my money on it going to Ramos.

The crazy (odd) thing is, I have yet to see this vehicle show up on any N.A. production forecasts, do you think GM would start out importing it from somewhere else!?

Maybe they haven't decided yet!?.............
