General Motors Announces Dedicated EV Plant
Oct. 19, 2020—Last week, General Motors announced its $2.2 billion plans to turn its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center into Factory ZERO.
Factory ZERO will be the all-new production plant for the automaker's electric vehicles. Among the first models manufactured at the "new" location will be the HUMMER EV. Fox Business reports that this investment, GM's largest, will create 2,200 manufacturing jobs.
“Factory ZERO is the next battleground in the EV race and will be GM’s flagship assembly plant in our journey to an all-electric future,” said Gerald Johnson, GM's executive vice president of global manufacturing.
