WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

 WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION
 DETROIT, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Ward's Automotive Reports said


today that U.S. car and truck producers will manufacture an estimated 212,822 vehicles this week.
 This week's scheduled number of assemblies represents a 12.5-percent uptick from last week's actual output of 189,176 as automakers continue to beef up dealer lots with '93 models, Ward's said. This week's slated output also is 0.9 percent higher than same-week 1991's 210,975.
 However, three regularly active U.S. assembly plants are closed this week due to high dealer stocks, Ward's added.
 Calendar-year 1992 U.S. production through the end of this week stands at an estimated 7,024,449, 9.2 percent above like-1991's 6,433,437, Ward's said.
 Of the cars slated for production this week in the United States, General Motors accounted for 40.6 percent; Ford Motor Co., 24.8 percent; Chrysler Corp., 9.6 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 7.4 percent; AutoAlliance International Inc., 5.0 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg. Corp., 4.0 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc., 3.9 percent; Diamond-Star Motors Corp., 2.2 percent; New United Motor Mfg. Inc. 1.5 percent; and Subaru-Isuzu Automotive Inc., 1.0 percent.
