Major Project, Jobs to be Located In Lansing

LANSING — General Motors has indicated it will build a new EV battery plant in Delta Township near Lansing. The announcement comes after Governor Whitmer led a bi-partisan push to ensure that Michigan would be able to offer the types of incentives other states have used to attract EV plants such as Kentucky and Tennesee.

The plant is expected to employ up to 1,700 workers and will cost $2.5 billion to build. GM has build two other EV battery plants in the United States and this will be its first in Michigan. In addition to the plant in Delta Township, GM has also applied for tax incentives to expand its Orion Township manufacturing plant to become the third assembly plant for EV vehicles for GM.

The investments come after President Joe Biden and Governor Gretchen Whitmer have called for increased investments in EV technology in the United States. Recently, President Biden signed an infrastructure bill that would help create more opportunities for people to own and operate EV cars.

These investments are part of GM’s commitment to only sell Electric Vehicles by 2035. GM plans to roll out 30 new EV concepts by the year 2025.
