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. Amos O’Neal (D-Saginaw) issued a statement celebrating the news:

“This is a victory for the people of Michigan. Both the governor and the Legislature have shown real leadership in making sure that Michigan is ready for new business. We’ve laid the groundwork to attract new industry to Michigan and ensure companies, like General Motors, can thrive, expand and create new, good-paying, union jobs here at home. I could not be happier to be part of the now successful effort to bring auto manufacturing back to Michigan.”
