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. Cara A. Clemente (D-Lincoln Park) issued the following statement celebrating the news:

“The auto manufacturing industry built Michigan’s economic foundation, and the road to our economic future will be powered by electric vehicles.

GM’s investment shows us just that.”
