GM Announces Plans to Add 400 Jobs, Build New Electric Vehicle at Michigan Factory
General Motors plans to add 400 jobs and build a new electric vehicle at a Michigan factory.
GM made the announcement Friday, less than a week after a series of critical tweets from President Donald Trump over the closing of an Ohio plant.
GM says it will spend $300 million to build a Chevrolet vehicle based on the battery-powered Bolt in Orion Township.
GM didn’t say when the vehicle will go on sale or when the workers would start. GM also neglected to say if the workers would come from a pool of laid-off employees or be new hires.
GM also said it plans to spend another $1.4 billion at U.S. factories with 300 more jobs but didn’t give any other details.
