to answer the question, its going to come down to demand vs how fast Oshawa can ramp up to full production. Build quality is critical, so they'll ramp up to capacity slowly at first.
Sold orders get bumped up in the system. If production rates cant keep up with that demand, then you wont see many on lots.
... but its not like GM has 40,000 sold orders at this point...
I said and know it cost GM to build a car and know there having trouble.So why not build them at least in some large amounts more than it seems they are starting out with so far and have done with models in the past. If dealers were worried about cars sitting on lots costing them then why mark them up? Why not sell as many as possiable and buy more to then sell. Because if they can make even more than sticker they will try. And while there trying they are not ordering more .
