GM Investing $2.2B in Detroit
CBJ — General Motors plans to invest $2.2 billion in its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to build electric pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles.
The new line of vehicles is expected to create up to 2,200 jobs.
The company also has designs on building a self-driving vehicle, called the Cruise Origin.
The plant currently builds the Cadillac CT6 and the Chevrolet Impala sedans. However, it will be idled at the end of next month as GM begins retrofitting for production of the new line of 21st century vehicles.
