WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

 WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION
 DETROIT, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Ward's Automotive Reports


announced today that U.S. vehicle manufacturers will build an estimated 177,648 cars and trucks this week.
 This week's scheduled output is down 12.5 percent from last week's actual build, but is 2.1 percent above same-week 1991's count of 173,926, Ward's said.
 However, this week's total reflects a four-day work week, as nearly all U.S. manufacturers are shuttering their plants Friday for the Easter holiday. Only Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc. will be assembling vehicles Friday.
 Also, only one regularly active U.S. light-vehicle plant is down this week, Ward's said.
 Estimated calendar year 1992 output, through the end of this week, is 2,790,309, 13.4 percent above like-1991, reported Ward's.
 Of the cars slated for production this week in the United States, General Motors Corp.'s share is 46.6 percent; Ford Motor Co., 24.2 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 7.9 percent; Chrysler Corp., 7.5 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc., 4.4 percent; New United Motor Mfg. Inc., 2.8 percent; Diamond-Star Motors Corp., 2.5 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg. Corp., 2.0 percent; Mazda Motor Mfg. (USA) Corp., 1.2 percent; and Subaru-Isuzu Automotive Inc., 0.9 percent.
