LANSING, Mich., Jan. 25, 2022 — Today, General Motors announced a $7 billion investment in electric vehicle manufacturing in Michigan, including the construction of a new electric vehicle battery plant in Delta Township and a $4 billion investment in its Orion assembly plant that will together create 4,000 jobs. Both projects are part of GM’s effort to shift to 100% electric vehicle production by 2035. State Rep. Julie Brixie (D-Meridian Township) issued the following statement celebrating the news:

“This was a tremendous bipartisan effort with so many people involved, from GM to Gov. Whitmer to our regional economic development teams across the state. I’m thankful that we could all come together to make this a reality, as we know that electric vehicles are the future, and they will be manufactured near the battery plants. This is a great day for Michigan.”
