When GM set up the Wilmington Plant it invested only 150 million in equipment, which is a relatively low fixed price cost to make back. The variable content per car is very high. The platform has a relatively high labor content. What all of this means is that with 2 shifts and about 30,000 units from all four brands produced, GM will still be making money on this car, though not what it was making before. Don't forget that in about a year GM will be offering the Soltice Targa, which will add sales for the Kappa line.
