General Motors Canada says it will restart production at its assembly plant in Oshawa, Ont., ahead of schedule.
In a May 5 news release, the company announced that full-size truck production is now expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year, ahead of the previous target of January 2022.
“Oshawa Assembly is on track to deliver one of the fastest plant launches in GM history,” the news release said.
