General Motors will end production of six sedans by the end of 2019.
North American customers want SUVs, crossovers, hatchbacks and trucks. Sedans have fallen out of favor.
As GM (GM) adjusts to changing customer behavior it is also planning ahead for the future. The company announced massive layoffs and is closing five North American facilities as it transitions to self-driving, electric cars of the future.

Amanda Bynes opens up about her downfall:
Four years after a series of troubling arrests and Twitter rants, Amanda Bynes is ready to talk about what happened.
“I’m really ashamed and embarrassed with the things I said,” Bynes told Paper magazine. “I can’t turn back time but if I could, I would. And I’m so sorry to whoever I hurt and whoever I lied about because it truly eats away at me. It makes me feel so horrible and sick to my stomach and sad. Everything I worked my whole life to achieve, I kind of ruined it all through Twitter. It’s definitely not Twitter’s fault — it’s my own fault.”
The former child star, who rose to fame in the ’90s on shows like Nickelodeon’s “All That” and “The Amanda Show,” said she’s been sober for four years and is currently enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
Man shot by Alabama police was ‘a devoted son and brother,’ family says:
April Pipkins is still at a loss for words over the events that led up to her son’s fatal shooting Thanksgiving night — and as outrage grows she wants people to know that Emantic Bradford Jr. was a loving man.
The 21-year-old was killed by a police officer in a case of mistaken identity during a shooting at Alabama’s largest enclosed mall Thursday night.
Officers initially thought Bradford fired the rounds at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover that left an 18-year-old and a 12-year-old hospitalized, Hoover police spokesman Capt. Gregg Rector said in a statement.
“I will never be able to see my son’s face again or to look into his eyes or to hear him say, ‘Mom, I love you,'” Pipkins said of her son, adding that he may not be able to have an open-casket funeral because he was shot in the face.
Mississippi’s US Senate race comes to a close amid racial controversies:
Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith was expected to coast to victory in a Mississippi runoff that would conclude the last Senate race of 2018’s midterm elections.
Instead, Hyde-Smith has spent the days leading up to Tuesday’s election mired in controversy that evoked the state’s dark history of racism and slavery.
It began when video emerged online of her telling supporters earlier this month that she’d be “on the front row” if one of her supporters there “invited me to a public hanging.” She later called the comments an “exaggerated expression of regard,” but her use of the phrase “public hanging” brought memories of Mississippi’s history of lynchings to the forefront and put the contest under the national microscope.
Trump claims migrants grab children to cross southern border for favored status:
President Donald Trump suggested Monday that some adults had “grabbed” children at the Southwestern border to better their chances of entering the US while confronting federal agents during an incident Sunday that resulted in the use of tear gas.
Trump — speaking at a roundtable event in Biloxi, Mississippi — described what he called “grabbers” — migrants who grab children and “think they’ll have a certain status by having a child.” He alluded to the people with children in the group as possibly not being their parents.
