In spite of the recent announcement by General Motors that it will close the Oshawa, Ontario truck plant in 2009, the company will proceed with production of hybrid pickup trucks there this fall. GM has already installed equipment and trained assembly workers to assemble the Two-Mode hybrid GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado at the Canadian plant. GM has not changed its plans to close the plant and will likely move the new tooling to one of the remaining truck plants in the U.S. The pickups use the same hybrid system that GM already uses in the Tahoe/Yukon SUVs.
