GM to Build 2 More US EV Materials Factories
Dec. 13, 2021—General Motors on Thursday announced it will build two new factories in the United States to process raw materials used in electric vehicles.
According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, GM will work with two unnamed partners on the factories. One will be located in Fort Worth, Texas, and the other at a location that has not yet been announced. Both are aiming to be in production by 2024.
“We are building a resilient and sustainable EV manufacturing value chain in North America from raw materials to components to drive GM’s growth and support a mass market for EVs,” GM executive Shilpan Amin said.
Amin said the agreements mean a "majority" of GM's Ultium platform will be sourced from the United States.
