(Reuters) – General Motors Co (GM.N) plans to announce as early as Monday it will significantly cut car production in North America and stop building some low-selling car models, a source briefed on the matter said.

The decision comes as the largest U.S. automaker is poised announced it will idle an assembly plant in Canada. GM plans to announce a broader restructuring of its efforts as it shifts more of its focus toward electrified and autonomous vehicles, the source said.
