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 more than 4,000 jobs. Both projects are part of GM’s effort to shift to 100% electric vehicle production by 2035. State Rep. Mary Cavanagh (D-Redford) issued the following statement celebrating the news:


“GM’s willingness to invest in Michigan workers and communities is a testament to the hard working people across the state. Not only will this announcement bring good-paying jobs and innovation back to our state, but it signals to other companies and manufacturers that Michigan is open for business. There’s nothing more important to a community than economic opportunity. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature to make sure that every community gets a fair chance to succeed.”
