In order to increase output at plants in Trollhattan, Sweden and Russelsheim, Germany, General Motors is holding a productivity contest whereby the competitors will vie for the chance to build future midsize models. The battle is being spun as both a "no-holds-barred first blood Texas death match" and a "study to decide on the most advantageous place to build the new car", which will arrive three years from this exact second. Saab unions at the recently-sluggish Trollhattan plant are trying to stir workers, who are going to need a lot of convincing since the last thing we heard from GM was that Saabs don't necessarily need to be built in Sweden.
