General Motors to resume limited production at Michigan plant

General Motors on Tuesday said it will restart limited production for two weeks at its Orion Assembly plant in Michigan.

The plant was closed since August. It builds the electric vehicle Chevrolet Bolt.

The automaker in August widened its recall of the Bolt to over 140,000 vehicles to replace battery modules and to address fire hazards. The plant that assembles the Bolt was idled through the end of October.

GM said limited production will begin November 1 to help optimize battery production and supply chain repair logistics, including providing vehicles to be used as courtesy transportation for consumers during recall repairs.

GM President Mark Reuss at a roundtable in Washington on Tuesday that the automaker is addressing the recall before it will restart production of new vehicles for consumers.
