GM Announces EV-Focused Factory
Jan. 28, 2020—General Motors announced that its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant will focus exclusively on electric vehicles, including a truck model that will begin production in 2021.
The announcement is part of a $2.2 billion investment, a press release said. Production will also include the Cruise Origin, which is an autonomous EV model.
“Through this investment, GM is taking a big step forward in making our vision of an all-electric future a reality,” GM President Mark Reuss said.
The plant will be idled for several months beginning at the end of February as the renovations begin.
