Stellantis, LG Announce EV Battery Factory for Ontario
March 23, 2021—Stellantis and LG Energy Solution will reportedly build a new battery cell manufacturing facility in Ontario, Canada.
According to a report from The Detroit News, a person "familiar with the matter" said an official announcement is expected later today, and the Canadian government emphasis on businesses with clean-energy practices helped push the companies to that decision.
An LG spokesperson said no official information is available to share. The impending announcement comes just under half a year after the two companies initially announced a partnership.
Ontario's economic development minister said he "is confident the province will land at least one EV battery manufacturing plant before ... June."
