GM To Announce Electric Vehicle For Tennessee Plant


General Motors (GM) is reportedly going to build the Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV at its factory in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The company is expected to make major manufacturing announcement on Tuesday.

According to Associated Press the Detroit automaker said it plans an online announcement Tuesday morning, however, it did not reveal further.

Last week  Gerald Johnson, GM’s head of global manufacturing, said the factory for the Lyriq would be announced this week.

The consulting firm LMC Automotive predicted that the Lyriq, the company’s first electric SUV, will be built in Spring Hill. That means Spring Hill is likely to be the company’s third electric vehicle factory. LMC Senior Vice President Jeff Schuster said he expects GM to build other electric vehicles at Spring Hill as well, reports the news agency.

General Motors have already revealed that EVs will be built at its plant in Orion Township, Michigan, and at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, which straddles the border between the city of Detroit and the hamlet of Hamtramck.
