Five months since we last touched on the topic of GM's Spring Hill plant (formerly the exclusive site of Saturn production), what have we learned? Um, not a whole heck of a lot, other than recent confirmation that the plant will lose at least one shift's worth of production as the Ion officially moves elsewhere. If future Saturn production is not in the cards, then what will fill the void? Personally, we'd like to hear that there's a line of RWD products coming along that will be built in this plant (the Lansing plant that builds Sigma-based Cadillacs has little additional capacity), but there's also GM's commitment to "crossover vehicles" that has to be fulfilled somehow.
