American carmaker General Motors will shut down five manufacturing plants temporarily in the US, coming January 2017.
A Spokeswoman cited that the reason for temporary closure of five manufacturing plants is due to low demand, and the carmaker will close the plants for one to three weeks from the beginning of next year.
Commenting on the temporary shut down, the GM Spokeswoman said, "GM adjusts its manufacturing plants' production schedules to meet market demand as part of the normal course of business."
General motors has seen the inventories of sedans stock up, while the sales of Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and trucks stayed strong.
The five plants that will be closed are the two units in Michigan, and one each in Kentucky, Kansas, and Ohio. The temporary closure of five plants will affect around 14,000 workers.
