GM Expected to Announce Major Investment in 2016 Volt
General Motors Co. on Tuesday is expected to announce it will add 1,400 jobs and invest about $450 million at its Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Plant and Brownstown Township battery assembly facility, according to four sources familiar with the automaker’s plan.
The announcement is expected to include adding a second shift at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant and investing to build a redesigned plug-in hybrid Chevrolet Volt, according to sources. One source, who asked not to be identified because the plans have not been made public, said the second shift would be added next year. Another source said the investment also is focused on battery technologies.
GM’s vice president of North America manufacturing, Gerald Johnson, is slated to make the announcement during the Automotive Press Association lunch Tuesday in Detroit. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Gov. Rick Snyder have been invited to attend the event, which in an invitation says GM will talk about its “ongoing investment to maintain its technology leadership.”
