OSHAWA, Ont. — GM Canada will invest $12 million to increase production of the Chevrolet Equinox on the consolidated line in Oshawa, Ont., and for related changes in the body shop at CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont.
The investment extends plans for production on the consolidated line into 2017, according to a company announcement Wednesday.
“This new investment represents a very effective way for us to meet strong demand for the Chevrolet Equinox and it’s positive news for our community,” said Steve Carlisle, president and managing director, GM Canada.
The Oshawa assembly plant currently produces the Chevrolet Equinox and the previous generation Chevrolet Impala on its consolidated line, as well as the Buick Regal, the current model Chevrolet Impala, the Chevrolet Camaro and the Cadillac XTS on its flex line.
The company has previously announced that production of the Chevrolet Camaro will end in Oshawa in November.
