GM Investing $2.2 Billion to Refurbish Detroit Factory

General Motors is reinvesting in Michigan, spending more than $2 billion to revitalize a Detroit factory.

GM says the Detroit-Hamtramck plant will build only electric and self-driving vehicles, eventually employing 2,000 people.

The car manufacturer says it plans to build the company’s first electric pickup late next year and then a self-driving shuttle vehicle.

Back in November of 2018, General Motors said they plan to close this plant, along with three others in the U.S.

The factory will have to shut down next month for the renovations.

GM is also investing $800 million in equipment for part supplies and other projects.
