WARD'S REPORTS ESTIMATED PRODUCTION

 DETROIT, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. vehicle manufacturers are slated to produce 248,498 vehicles this week, bringing total car and truck output for the year to 10,122,484, according to Ward's Automotive Reports. Calendar-year production is now outpacing year-ago's rate by 11.4 percent.
 This week's scheduled output is 66.8 percent higher than last week's actual build of 148,960 vehicles, because all U.S. plants were down last Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday. Of the planned production, 142,291 units are passenger cars and 106,207 are trucks -- including medium- and heavy-duty makes.
 Scheduled Canada production for this week is 34,058 -- down 8.3 percent from the prior week's actual build of 37,130.
 Four U.S./Canada assembly plants remain shut down this week for retooling to new products.
 Of the cars and trucks slated for production this week in the United States, General Motors Corp. accounts for 42.6 percent; Ford Motor Co., 29.1 percent; Chrysler Corp., 11.8 percent; Honda of America Mfg. Inc., 3.8 percent; Nissan Motor Mfg. Corp., 3.6 percent; Toyota Motor Mfg. USA Inc., 2.0 percent; New United Motor Mfg. Inc., 1.6 percent; Diamond-Star Motors Corp., 1.4 percent; AutoAlliance International Inc., 1.2 percent; Subaru-Isuzu Automotive Inc., 1.1 percent; Navistar International Transportation Corp., 0.6 percent; and other manufacturers, 1.2 percent.
