General Motors expects its North American vehicle production to return to near pre-coronavirus levels by the end of June, Chairman and CEO Mary Barra said Wednesday.

The Detroit automaker has worked aggressively to restart its operations, particularly those that produce pickup trucks, since restarting production May 18. The plants closed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“This week we’ll continue to add additional shifts in our North America plants, and we think we’ll be close to normal capacity by the end of June, and sooner, if possible,” Barra said during a Wolfe Research automotive conference.
