GM weaker in Europe amid strong US performance

General Motors (GM) is expected to show a strong performance for the last three months, though not as strong as earlier in the year.

Whilst GM is doing well in North America and China, its European arm is struggling.

GM's Opel business, with plants in the UK and Germany, is expected to lose $300m in the last quarter.

GM has shut plants and cut jobs in Europe but many expect more losses to come.
