Worryingly: GM To Slash Jobs And Production, Cancel Some Car Models

Recommended Posts

The biggest reason though is that the car manufacturers are saying that they do not make much money on smaller cars, they are switching over to SUV's that bring a bigger profit margin. They also use more fuel compared to the small cars, so keep on buying those SUV's America!!!

 Gotta love the logic that says we have to have an SUV but we bitch about the cost of fuel for them, not very bright, right?

It's why Ford got out of cars. And even Tesla's biggest detractors must admit they're here to stay. GM says these closures are about SUVs/trucks and EVs as they plan investment in both for their future.

Toyota, Honda, BMW, VW,... are asleep at the wheel.
