I read about this way in the past, but have since forgotten. What was annual production of this plant supposed to be ? One of the recent Solstice topics said

GM says it will build about 7,000 Solstices this year.

I was thinking this sounded low.

Isn't the process of assembly for Kappa more involved, more difficult? Wilmington used to build the L-Series, before that it either built minivans or Malibus/Cutlasses I dont remember which, so it should be able to handle decent capacity for regular assembly.

Production the last I saw was bumped to 15,000 with 13,000 sold. They were just ramping up slow and preparing for the Sky and Opel to start production.

I thought the goal was to do enough with Kappa to have the plant at full capacity which would put it in the same ball park as any other GM plant.

That plant used to build mid size cars with a capacity to build around 200k a year. They won't come anywhere near that with KAPPA,maybe 60k-80k a year.

I think they'll reach their production capacity, or at least come close to it, if a certain concept vehicle debuting at NAIAS is produced http://www.cheersandgears.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/AH-HA_wink.gif

Wouldn't Kappa be to small for what I think you are hinting at, didn't the insiders say it's not a flexible platform?
