GM's Factory Zero Halts Production for EV Upgrades
June 23, 2022—General Motors' Factory Zero in Detroit, which is the automaker's first facility dedicated to building EVs, will be temporarily shuttered for upgrades to expand production capacity.
According to a report from The Detroit News, GM is planning to upgrade the facility to handle production of the GMC Hummer EV pickup, which was debuted last year. The facility will also be able to produce yet-to-be-announced EVs in the future as well.
The shutdown will start the week of June 27 and run through the third week of July. The renovation is coming sooner than initially planned.
As of Friday, June 17, GM reported having 77,500 reservations of the Hummer EV.
