Chip Shortage Leaves Thousands of Incomplete GM Vehicles in Storage

In a regulatory filing on Friday, General Motors said it built 95,00 vehicles without certain components in the second quarter, most of them in June. The incomplete vehicles are a result of the global shortage of computer chips. GM’s filing said it expects most of the vehicles to be finished and sold to dealers by the end of the year.

The vehicles represent 16 percent of GM’s total sales from April to June. The company said it sold more than 582,000 vehicles in the second quarter, a 15% decrease from last year.
