GM sales chief Mark Laneve had a revelation late yesterday:
We probably need to trim back some truck and SUV capacity.
Probably? The gas-guzzling trucks and SUVs that are the hallmark of modern-day GM are now so unwanted, dealerships won’t even accept them for trade-ins. An announcement by GM is expected soon regarding their specific plans to make more cars and, as Mr. Laneve put it, “fine-tune” their overall truck and SUV output. Meanwhile, Nissan will have an electric car in 2010.
