General Motors Corp.’s Adam Opel AG unit says it will increase output of its new midsize Vectra due to increased demand. Production targets for the year originally were set at 150,000 units, but that figure now has risen to 165,000. The Vectra, introduced last spring, has about 70,000 orders waiting to be filled, and Opel has added more shifts on Saturday at its Russelsheim, Germany, plant to meet demand.
