GM adds 117,000 to tally of production cuts

DETROIT General Motors Corp. added 117,000 vehicles yesterday to the number of production cuts, citing continued weak in consumer demand for pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles.

GM spokesman Tony Sapienza said the automaker will eliminate one shift each at its Moraine, Ohio, and Shreveport, La., plants. The Moraine plant makes the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, Buick Ranier, Isuzu Ascender, and Saab 9-7x midsize SUVs, and the Shreveport plant makes produces the GMC Canyon, Chevrolet Colorado, and Hummer H3.

The cuts bring GM s total production cuts to just under the 300,000 units company officials had hoped to cut this year, Mr. Sapienza said.
