The loss of Oldsmobile from the U.S. auto-making town of Lansing, Michigan will have minimal effect as suppliers move in to support two new General Motors assembly plants, the Detroit News reported this week. According to the newspaper, the two new factories, projected to cost $US1.6 billion, will produce a variety of vehicles over the next three years. On top of that, there should be further investment in a $US70 million upgrade of the low-volume Lansing Craft Centre to produce the Chevrolet SSR sports car.
