Suzuki halts CAMI production

Posted Tuesday, May 12, 2009, 1:35 pm in Employee News

Suzuki Motor Co. will make no more vehicles in North America this year, but CEO Osamu Suzuki says he remains committed to the CAMI venture with General Motors, Automotive News reported.

An Ingersoll, Ontario, plant had been making the Suzuki XL7 SUV, along with the Chevy Equinox and Pontiac Torrent. CAMI made 12,407 XL7s last year, but only four this year through Sunday, the trade paper said. The plant is still producing the GM models.

Suzuki has put further production plans on indefinite hold, the paper said. According to the Automotive News, Kojima said Suzuki hasn’t decided when it might resume production at CAMI Automotive Inc., a 50-50 joint venture with GM that started in 1989. The mid-sized XL7 is the largest vehicle made by Suzuki and the only model built in North America, the story said. (Automotive News)
