Rollback of SSR Production at Lansing Craft Centre

By  | 

Friday, General Motors announced significant rollbacks of the Chevy SSR at the Lansing Craft Centre plant. GM Spokesperson Kim Carpenter says production will cease for four weeks, beginning the end of January.

According to the Detroit News, GM had hoped to sell some 13-thousand SSR's between January and November of 2004, they sold under nine-thousand.

Carpenter says they're not sure what this will mean for the 500 workers in the Lansing facility, but did not rule out layoffs.

Local dealer Ralph Shaheen admits the SSR is a summer sports car, similar to a mustang. He says sales slumps are common in Michigan where severe winters are typical.
