General Motors has announced that its Spring Hill, Tennessee assembly plant will begin the transition to become the company’s third vehicle manufacturing site to produce electric vehicles. Spring Hill will join Factory ZERO in Detroit and Hamtramck, Michigan, and Orion Assembly in Orion Township, Michigan.
$2 billion will be invested in Spring Hill Manufacturing to build fully electric vehicles including the all-new luxury Cadillac LYRIQ. The renovation work in Spring Hill will begin immediately.
In addition, the company is confirming investments in five other Michigan plants.
GM Chairman and CEO, Mary Barra, says: “We are committed to investing in the U.S., our employees and our communities. These investments underscore the success of our vehicles today, and our vision of an all-electric future.”
GM has committed to invest more than $4.5 billion at three U.S. manufacturing sites to prepare those facilities for EV-related vehicle production.
Production of the first all-electric GMC HUMMER EV pickup, the first of a variety of all-electric trucks and SUVs to be built at GM’s Factory ZERO plant, will begin in late 2021. This will be followed soon after by the Cruise Origin, a purpose-built electric, self-driving vehicle.
