GM tops Nissan to become the top carmaker in Mexico

GM tops Nissan to become the top carmaker in Mexico

General Motors enters 2019 as the top carmaker in Mexico.

The distinction comes as GM plans to shutter four U.S. manufacturing facilities this year, putting thousands of jobs at risk and drawing political and labor criticism of its decision to produce so many vehicles in Mexico, particularly the new Chevrolet Blazer SUV.

GM’s rise in Mexico is largely because of Nissan scaling back its sedan production there, slipping from the top position. GM, on the other hand, has been retooling its San Luis Potosi plant and Ramos Arizpe facility in recent years to shift to SUV and pickup production.
