GM commits $3 billion to build electric and autonomous vehicles in Michigan

GM said Monday it will invest $2.2 billion into its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant to produce all-electric trucks and SUVs as well as a self-driving vehicle unveiled by its subsidiary Cruise. The automaker will invest an additional $800 million in supplier tooling and other projects related to the launch of the new electric trucks.
GM will kick off this new program with an all-electric pickup truck that will go into production in late 2021. The Cruise Origin, the electric self-driving shuttle designed for ride sharing, will be the second vehicle to go into production at the Detroit area plant.
Detroit-Hamtramck will be GM’s first fully-dedicated electric vehicle assembly plant. When fully operational, the plant will create more than 2,200 jobs, according to GM.

Electric trucks, SUVs and the @Cruise Origin — all built here in our hometown. This is what the future of transportation looks like. #Detroit #ZeroEmissions
